Leap-Seconds

Leap-Seconds[EPUB] ✻ Leap-Seconds ✾ Paul Zits – Jobs-in-kingston.co.uk A shocking unnerving narrative at its heart a love story Leap seconds is built of recombinant fragments from a profusion of sources But also at its core is the uestion How does one represent violence A shocking unnerving narrative at its heart a love story Leap seconds is built of recombinant fragments from a profusion of sources But also at its core is the uestion How does one represent violence in language If violence does not derive from a place of soundness then its product should be utterly confusing ultimately paralyzing The collection chronicles a bewilderment with institutionalized violence and the anxiety felt by a systemic desensitizationtowards it So the rhythms are aggressively arranged excessive the single mindedness of its repetitions an assault It's mannerist patterns seek to enliven our senses bring us to our senses render us sensitive A varied and polytonic manuscript approaching unsettling content with nerve and empathy Leap seconds is a compelling treatise on violence and a stark encounter with the apparatus by which it is so often normalized. At its best Leap Seconds offers a glimmer of that language of violence that its blurb maintains is the core focus of the work but too often its fragmentary narrative seems woefully designed as such; that the terse single minded repetition should come to dominate means that these fragments here become indistinguishable from the others and designed to neatly or intentionally pair It makes for relatively smooth reading as much as smooth can be when dealing with specific interludes of children's interjections but as a result everything inhabits a turgid lifeless air about it That doubles with small excerpts from other authors whose snippets enlighten the reading and make a clear difference already in terms of dictionMight try to revisit one day and not speed through it like some sort of demon; perhaps that reading might illuminate for me than this cursory one did I just couldn't connect to the style of his poetry in this collection
