Prize-winning poet and hypertext pioneer Stephanie Strickland pushes the boundaries of the printed word to create a completely original poetic experience. V is an invertible volume with two beginnings. Turning the volume from WaveSon.nets to Losing L'una and back again, over and over, creates a fluidity that extends to the poems themselves: words slip and pour across numbers that have their own lives.V's muse is Simone Weil, and in this new book Strickland's elegy for Weil is widened to include a long line of known and conjured women. An extraordinary work that is meant to be glimpsed and scanned and begun again, V pulses with many orders of knowledge, organization, and rhythm.
