By Caroline Knox
Publication Date: May 07, 2019
In Hear Trains, Caroline Knox seeks further contexts for her striking diction and syntax to establish new forms of understanding. With her signature wit and erudition, she plumbs the depths of etymology, reading, art, and nature, of comma splices, cyanotypes, cupboards, and poppits, lashing together the unlikeliest subjects by the very language they have always shared and delighting readers with a real world made startlingly new, fulsomely re-enriched.
