A moving new collection from Canadian poet Margaret Christakos, charger considers the plugged-in self fuelled by the technologies that deliver us to each other. A deeply humane poetic cycle, Charger grapples with the complicated currents that course between private and social, between mortal and virtual, and between estrangement and belonging to the natural world amid our fallacies of unlimited sustainability. With notes of memory and mourning for those we love and lose, this poetry contemplates how we resuscitate each other amid the speeding electronic webscapes now so common to our social conduct.
