A hospital where a body is connected to a medical device. A deceptively idyllic meadow under which cables swarm. Shores where forms oscillate between burial and immersion. In Desolation, Verity Spott proposes a phantasmagorical poetry between narration, prose and dialogues. The expression of feelings upsets the attributions of personal pronouns and syntactic structures. Shifting identities take on austerity policies and far-right voices. A book of mourning and love that borders on satire, Desolation works with a hybrid writing style where lyrical poetry, images from blockbusters and the language of demagogues intertwine to counter the molds that would attempt to dictate the shape of our sorrows.
