Description

The Lichtenberg Figures , winner of the Hayden Carruth Award, is an unconventional sonnet sequence that interrogates the relationship between language and memory, violence and form. "Lichtenberg figures" are fern-like electrical patterns that can appear on (and quickly fade from) the bodies of people struck by lightning.

Throughout this playful and elegiac debut--with its flashes of autobiography, intellection, comedy, and critique--the vocabulary of academic theory collides with American slang and the idiom of the Old Testament meets the jargon of the Internet to display an eclectic sensibility.

Ben Lerner , the youngest poet ever published by Copper Canyon Press, is co-founder of No: a journal of the arts . He earned an MFA from Brown University and is currently a Fulbright scholar in Spain.
