Taking as her inspiration the feudal rules that once enforced social rank by legislating what a person was permitted to wear and eat, Matuk discovers a new metaphor for contemporary desire in her first full-length collection. Through wildly imaginative and linguistically daring poems she explores 21st-century “sumptuary laws” that dictate societal divisions of luxury and necessity, splendor and squalor, and in the process creates an anthology of irresistible originality.
