Publisher Marketing: In A Complex Sentence, Marjorie Welish builds immersive intertextual environments as she grapples with the canon of modernist poetry and the ways we talk about poetics.

In her sixth collection, Welish continues to explore critical practices such as diagramming, inscription, and quotation, extending her unflinching gaze to literary acts, from finding the right desk, to logic gates, to the possibilities for dismantling and augmenting the logics of language. Expertly manipulating the space of the page, her poems dissolve the boundaries between visual art and the written word. With her signature precision, musicality, and structural rigor, Welish simultaneously dismantles and rebuilds what we understand as language.
