J R Carpenter & Alicia Kopf

Polar Explorations

Humans and animals have traversed the Arctic Ocean for many centuries, yet still writers find innovative ways to imagine this remote northern territory. J R Carpenter's fascinating collection of poetry, An Ocean of Static, is generated from ship logs and code language. Catalan writer Alicia Kopf’s Brother in Ice is a hybrid novel built from research notes, a fictionalised diary and a travelogue of polar exploration.
