Censory Impulse by Erica Kaufman

Censory Impulse by Erica Kaufman, graduate, the MFA in Creative Writing at The New School.

Factory School, 2009

Barnes & Noble: “Censory Impulse is a book-length excavation of the body (both physical and psychological) disrupted. These poems take their calling from the relationship between the neurological and the political, the digestive and the subjective, the gendered and the cyborg. Kaufman’s verse is located somewhere between Oliver Sachs, Donna Haraway, and Chris Hables Gray—only in place of scientific hypotheses we see line breaks, metaphorical projections, and ‘labyrinth authority.'”
