Sofia Samatar (The White Review, 11/2021), "Standing at the Ruins": "Placing these poems together, juxtaposing these different landscapes, gives me a sense of planetary mourning. Their elegiac power has intensified over time, for the world they assume will never change is no longer here today ... Imru al-Qays helps me imagine a capacious, crackling spiral, flexible enough to survive ..." English & Arabic versions. The Wanderer Project. "Climate Change in the Age of Numbing." Frankenstein 1818 & 1831 (diffs). Vesuvius in Eruption. Frankenstein in Baghdad excerpt 1 & 2. The Ruins. "Letter from Joanna." "Feeling Kinky about Environmentalism." Hydriotaphia, Urn Burial. Samatar previously.
