Gut Botany

by Petra Kuppers

"Gut Botany charts my body / language living on indigenous land as a white settler and traveler," writes Professor of English Petra Kuppers in the notes of her new poetry collection. Using a perfect cocktail of surrealist and situationist techniques, Kuppers submits to the work and to the land, moving through ancient fish, wounded bodies, and the space around her. The book invites the reader to navigate their own body through the peaks and pitfalls of pain, survival, sensual joy, and healing.
