About the Book

Trisha Georgiou confronts and deploys the conundrums of the English language in her poetry chapbook, A Bizarre Sentence. Not content with using anaphora (repeating an initial phrase over and over), she takes the words “bizarre sentence” and repeats them throughout the volume. Her tool is polysemy and it is also often her subject. She masterfully brings this to the apex in her poem Confusion, in English. Again, not content with repeating words for singular effect, the words are also alive as sentences. The word “bizarre” bends in her volume. Sometimes it means simply strange, but often it connotes a feeling of helplessness. As she writes in the poem In Limbo; “so much of this bizarre sentence/ is out of our control.” Often we are compelled to come to terms with the many meanings of “sentence.” Of course, it is jail term or grammatical unit. But it can also be both. Her multi-lingual poem In Unison is a prayer for world peace in many languages. She even links the word to DNA sequences in Energy Works. When non-native English speakers begin to learn the language, they many be challenged by the many meanings of the words. Georgiou many lament the bizarre sentences as well, but she also revels in their mystery.
