Whereas - Layli Long Soldier
confronts the coercive language of the United States government in its responses, treaties, and apologies to Native American peoples and tribes, and reflects that language in its officiousness and duplicity back on its perpetrators. Through a virtuosic array of short lyrics, prose poems, longer narrative sequences, resolutions, and disclaimers, Layli Long Soldier has created a brilliantly innovative text to examine histories, landscapes, her own writing, and her predicament inside national affiliations.
A blistering and personal polemic against today's monolithic tech companies argues that in spite of the conveniences of their products, today's ambitious corporations are triggering consequences in the form of privacy compromises, intellectual property loss and the negative homogenization of social, political and intellectual arenas.
