Book Description

The Odes to TL61P is a suite of five massive, turbulent, tender and satirical odes written and revised from 2010-13. It is the explicit history of the author's sexual development from early infancy; a commentary on the social and political history of the UK since the election of the coalition government; a philosophical account of the common meaning of secrecy in the most intimate, private experiences and in international diplomacy; a wild work of revolutionary theory that investigates in minute detail the difference between commodities and human lives; a record of a thousand revisions, deletions and metamorphoses; an attempt to radically extend and reimagine the very possibility of the ode form; a monstrous accumulation of techniques and mimeses, from the strictest and most perfected metrical verse to the most delirious and cacophonous noise music; and a devoted love song to the now obsolete product ordering code for a bygone Hotpoint washer-dryer, "TL61P". It is the longest poetical work yet written by Keston Sutherland and his most comprehensive effort yet to transform the grammar of human existence.

In this book Keston Sutherland reaches a poetic voice which carries greater clarity than in his previous poems. Rather than a criticism of his earlier work this is in fact high praise for the voice of these Odes. Find considerations of the vital issues of the day, combined with wit, bathos, ability to sensitively handle a line and language with a tough sensibility worthy of the 21st challenges it confronts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hour is Nigh 19 Jan. 2013
By Vytrvv Spiders - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A lot of my contemporaries have complained about the phantom product code.
It simply disappeared. You can't even TOUCH those parts anymore. It feels
as though I'm 'slowly read[ing] all the notes on my coding notice' but what
it feels even more like is an element of uncanny sobriety in the face of it
which HAS to be that DOT from the previous book doesn't it really. Trouble
is, right, the whole thing keeps changing. Every time I get my hands on
a copy of this book I can feel him moving the lodged spoon in the door which
obviously doesn't close. #

I'm guessing you'll want one. Everyone wants one.
