ATMOSPHERICS by Lohren Green Is Now Available
Atmospherics is a prose poetry textbook that brings sensual life to the reference work. Encompassing topics as varied as the flow of time in museums, the play of momentum through a sports event, and the expression of food in dreams, it studies how anything ever comes to feel like anything in particular at all. The hypothesis of this science is poetries. And so it is through poetries, some terse and esoteric, others diagrammatically elaborate, that the text explores the endlessly variable topic of atmosphere.
Concept and specificity, voice and structure, shape and movement, multiplicity and coalescence, absorption and expression: many of the questions of poetry are also the questions of atmosphere. Atmospherics represents the confluence of poetry and philosophy, and of learning and teaching - a writing that meditates between concepts and particularity, pushing an expressive phenomenology beyond the resolution of experience into a very quietly strange world where there is wonder at the mood of a city street, the cry of a trumpet, the turn of an event.
