Caldera Index

  • Logan Richard Simonson University of Victoria

Abstract

"Caldera Index" grapples with the synthetic power of words and of language, and how they hold up (or how they don't) against the raw, natural power of the things they describe. A volcanic eruption leaves onlookers in a crisis of danger and silence. Can language really be used to describe such events? Nature says no, poetry says yes.
