About this title


Poetry. Cross-Genre. In this multifaceted collection of dreamscape stories and arabesque concrete poetry, Keith Nathan Brown invokes a wide range of literary and non-literary forms—from poetry to scientific report, from short story to mathematical proof—as a way to explore the gray area between mind and body where selfhood finds its origin. These thirty three fictions, poems and hybrid texts are arranged in thematically-related sets and subsets to simulate a travel guide to "cross-conscious interstates." Whether induced by illness or intoxication, or inspired by music or meditation, each psychoactive text offers itself as a node in a larger conversation about time, identity, meaning and the human bond. Philosophical in scope, psychological in depth, at turns witty and cerebral, at turns brooding and surreal, EMBODIED twists language—literally and figuratively—to open up portals of heightened reality and, more importantly, to activate a sense of discovery and awe in the face of everyday existence.

"'We have to go deeper yet,' says one of Keith Nathan Brown's characters, early in EMBODIED. She says, 'There's more layers, always more layers,' and everywhere in this book our reading proves her right: Dig below Brown's playful form and his accumulations of striking images and fragments, and there you might find only more questions, and beneath them only more almost-answers, new potential significances. 'Someday this will all make sense,' promises another character, and perhaps he is right. But if not, then who are we to complain, when the uncertainties are this curious? This is a book for seekers, a ritual of discovery, and Brown is a fine guide to its mysteries."—Matt Bell
