Selected by Fady Joudah as a winner of the National Poetry Series Jos Charles’s revolutionary second collection of poetry feeld is a lyrical unraveling of the circuitry of gender and speech defiantly making space for bodies that have been historically denied their own vocabulary “i care so much abot the whord i cant reed” In feeld First of all understand that this review is coming from a trans woman who loves poetryThe fact of the matter is that after you get past feeld's High Middle English gimmick there is very little of substance here Charles repeats phrases ad nauseam so much so that reading this book feels like reading the same poem sixty times While the spelling allows for some puns and double meanings tran transtrain hors horsehourswhores feeld feelfield etc what it adds in wordplay and aesthetics it detracts from accessibility and comprehensibility I had to spend several minutes deciphering each poem and ultimately they were not very good aside from a few beautiful and moving individual turns of phrase i was inn love with a famyne i was inn love with the ded did u kno not a monthe goes bye a tran i kno doesnt dyeI get what Jos Charles is trying to do with the Middle English really I do but the promising concept falls flat in its execution i am a mothe i am a brocken hors in a feeld of linden treees outsyde the feemale depositrie room mayde off a sirfase off folde and metall gendre is not the folde pretty much sums the entire collection up feeld simply isn't worth your time

feeld author Jos CharlCharles stakes her claim on the language available to speak about trans experience reckoning with the narratives that have come before by reclaiming the language of the past In Charles’s electrifying transliteration of English Chaucerian in affect but revolutionary in effect what is old is made new again “gendre is not the tran org ueerness is an issue of language In English battles are waged for the neutral third person pronoun in French endings are gotten rid of and in my native Russian endings are added In Chinese the word “ueer” means the same as “comrade” and in Bengali there is only one very technical word that means “homosexual” It’s a messy diverse journey which hopefully someone will one day document in a work of non fiction Maybe I should Meanwhile ueer writers do the job of reinventing language to suit their needs every day And some are better at it than others Jos Charles a transgender poet makes the language trans She takes the Middle English and our regular English for the binary binds them together and then creates something completely different and previously undiscovered The result is daring witty funny and absolutely splendid Never before have I seen the decay of binaries and biological presets engendered in language with such might
