Adeena Karasick is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning poet, media-artist, and author of seven books of poetry and poetic theory, most recently, This Poem and Amuse Bouche: Tasty Treats for the Mouth (both from Talonbooks) as well as four videopoems regularly showcased at film festivals worldwide. All her work is marked with an urban, Jewish, feminist aesthetic that continually challenges linguistic habits and normative modes of meaning production. Engaged with the art of combination and turbulence of thought, it is a testament to the creative and regenerative power of language and its infinite possibilities for pushing meaning to the limits of its semantic boundaries.
