Cartographies of Silence

Cartographies of Silence

Erik Vatne

Cartographies of Silence comprises over one hundred untitled poem fragments - what the poet calls "unconscious interruptions" - what navigate maps of being/non-being, writing/speaking/thinking, to reveal the mind-body experience where silence meets language.

“Short words, short lines, short poems. How big they are. How Vatne manages to travel so far.” -Robert Kelly

“Something essential known here, neither said nor shown. The word for its absence is remarkably not supplied. Enough space.” -Charles Stein
