New Border Poetry BIG_Book available for free


Dear Reader,

BIG is pleased to shared this unique book at the intersection of border studies and poetry, A World Anthology of Border Poetry, edited by Natasha Sardzoska and Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly, based on a recent special issue of BIG_Review, now the second publication in the new open-access series, BIG_Books.

The complete PDF is available HERE.


This multilingual anthology presents the works of poets from around the world, showcasing the state of the art and distinct contributions of poetry to literary criticism and dissent. Beyond the social sciences and humanities, the book points to the importance of poetry for the fields of inquiry into borderlands and frontiers as intersectional and relational human experiences. The poems invite the reader to explore innovative approaches to reading and writing borders, those that transcend language within their conventional semiology of boundary transgression.

Please share, and enjoy!
