about this item
Poetry. Translated from the Swedish by Johannes Göransson. "This is a threat." That's how HACKERS, Swedish writer Aase Berg's seventh book of poetry, begins. HACKERS is a furious, feminist book about wanting to "hack" the patriarchal system—both in the physically violent sense and in the sense of computer hacking. But Berg also reveals the 'hag' behind the 'hack,' channeling the non-compliant rage of Glenn-Close-as-bunny-boiler from Fatal Attraction. The world Berg "hags" back at is a world of sexist, capitalist, environmental, globalized violence. The fury of the hacker/hag/captive/revenger is constantly boiling up on the edges of Berg's compounds and highways, threatening to infiltrate the center. In these spectacular battle scenes and hacked pastorals, where nature is besieged by the highways of progress and the animals don't give a ****** about the humans, the hag rises.
