"Alphabetic dismantling, syntactic play, essaying words backwards and 4words (as she might say), Christakos manifests forensic clarity and telegraphic fortitude in this unsettling work."--Rachel Blau DuPlessis Revelling in the value of social polyphony from Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself," Multitudes looks at its contemporary theatres of Facebook and Twitter, post-riot police surveillance, protest culture and poetry itself. With wit, perceptiveness and her trademark linguistic sonar, Margaret Christakos keenly examines intimacies and banishments, as well as intergenerational grief, self-display and social hope.
