Ghost or Not: On Lee Ann Roripaugh’s “tsunami vs. the fukushima 50” – Los Angeles Review of Books

 

Of her decision to render the tsunami female, Roripaugh, who is poet laureate of South Dakota and editor-in-chief of the South Dakota Review, said, in a recent interview with Frontier Poetry, “nature […] is traditionally read as feminine, or female, and — much like women’s bodies — is a contested space that is endlessly erased, silenced, controlled, legislated, and colonized.”

Stop the Machine! Create a New World! / October 2011.

“Forty-seven years ago, Mario Savio, an activist student at Berkeley, said, “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all.” ~ from  Stop the Machine
