“Lee’s strange and gemological arrangements are the measure of her gift. . . .”—from the Foreword by Heather McHughIn the form of an eccentric dictionary, this debut brings to mind the long poems of Anne Carson. In compressed and oddly slanted “definitions,” Lee’s poems move through the alphabet in an attempt to limn the border between language and spirit. In Medias Res is an investigation into how God hides in language.
