Poetry. David Huebert's HUMANIMUS presents a world of soiled nature, of compromised ecology, of toxic transcendence. Raising environmental precarity to the level of mythos, this book implicates readers in what Dominic Pettman calls the humanimalchine, where modern cyborg bodies are rewired and remixed with mechanical membranes and animal prostheses. Revelling in corporeal excess and industrial abjection, HUMANIMUS fans the ash of the human experiment to see what strange beauty might wilt and whimper there.
