Either way, the primal materials of which this book is comprised -- love, sex, adolescence, space-time, depression, post-colonialism, and sugar -- are movingly and mysteriously transmuted: not into gold, but into a poets philosophers stone, in which language marries life.Structurally virtuosic, elaborate without being ornate, Loose Sugar is spun into series within series: each of the five sections has a dual heading (such as space / time or time / work) in which the terms are neither in collision nor collusion, but in conversation. Its elemental sweet talk, and is Brenda Hillmans most experimental work to date, culminating in a meditation on the possibility of a native -- and feminine -- language.
