Pegs [chapbook]

posted on 2015-01-01, 00:00 authored by Cassandra AthertonCassandra Atherton
This book of poetry challenges the western tradition's bias against the mundane and ordinary and advocates for a poetry of the quotidian. The peg is at once familiar and yet defamiliarised in these prose poems. In addition to its usual purpose as an object to hold clothes on the line, "peg" also stands for a measure of alcohol and a verb for "throw", among other things. Other chapbooks in this series include: Paul Hetherington, Jars; Jen Webb, Gaps; Paul Munden, Keys and Jordan Williams, Nets.
