Nonfiction. Literary Criticism. Poetics.BOXING INSIDE THE BOX is a creative/vital work proposing “women’s prose poetry” as a form distinct from that widely touted as “definitive” in journals, anthologies and vital texts. Iglesias believes that the form of prose poems–a easy box–serves as a formidable metaphor for gender roles that constrain and contain women. Unlike such a lot in their male opposite numbers who produce disembodied, ironic and surrealist prose poems, women write from inside of this genre-defiant box works which might be immediately lyrical and embattled, sensual and menacing.
