Hypergraphia and Other Failed Attempts At Paradise

Hypergraphia and Other Failed Attempts At Paradise

By Jennifer Metsker



A collection of poems that delve into the experience of living with bipolar disorder.   This collection of poetry explores the disruptive state of psychosis, with all its insights and follies, and the challenges of living life after a departure from the self. These poems reach for an understanding of the ecstasy and tragedy of madness through both lyric and prose forms that mimic the sublime state of mania through their engagement with language. Ordinary life becomes strange in these poems, which are playful and humorous at times and dark at others, as they seek resolution to the question of what happens when the mind overthrows the body.
