Oblique Techniques: Poetry of Present-Absent Place

Fingal Libraries present three poets, Alice Lyons, Catherine Walsh and Christodoulos Makris whose work explores the contemporary world in unusual ways. Documenting the moment in its various forms—public, private, elemental, intellectual, abstract and material—these poets use words, letters and phrases as material objects that can be arranged to surprise the reader with new meanings. Arrangements enact perception, movement and the process of thinking; art accompanies text; digital technologies in here. Call them experimental, avant-garde . . . or leave the categories and discover where the oblique leads.
