Subtexts by Dan Brady
In an innovative form, Dan Brady plays with the methods of erasure poetry to create something entirely new. His new book, Subtexts, is a collection of ten poems (in 88 pages) that uncover the networks of language and meaning through shifting layers of text. The poems concern themselves with some of the greatest threats humans face in 2022—from climate change, to the surveillance state, to America’s mental health crisis—and how our future hinges on our ability or failure to communicate.
Experimental while still accessible, Brady’s self-erasures find the freedom to say all that there is to say—and to reveal even that which is left unsaid.
