Ella Standage, "The Matter of the Body"

Poem made from the handout for a lecture on the fragmentary historical sources and missing tomb of Alexander the Great.

I posted another one of Ella Standage's poems here; I just love what she does with cut up texts.

And see here for a passage of the Iliad translated using a National Geographic article about whales.

My initial inclination was cynicism, and to see her method as a gimmick. But after reading the poem--there's a power in it. The power comes partly from the way it's put together, and is inseparable from it.
