Quarantine :: Contagion

Brian Henry

Quarantine :: Contagion

'Quarantine', the first long poem in this book, explores sexuality, subjectivity and the narrative process. Lying in a field beside his dead wife and son, the narrator describes events leading to their deaths (his own included) from the bubonic plague in 1665. A second long poem, 'Contagion', follows, mirroring and distorting the earlier narrative.
