NewPages Admires Leigh Kotsilidis' Provocative Debut Collection, Hypotheticals
'In Hypotheticals, the scientific method breaks down into a scattering of hypothetical circumstances. Leigh Kotsilidis’s debut poetry collection delves into the reimagining of knowledge and personhood, questioning, on an elemental scale, the configuration of the world. A variety of formal and free verse poems, Hypotheticals takes a hard yet lyrical look at the creatures and objects that inhabit our planet, inviting the reader in to experience these strange and surprising sensations.

Presented in fragments yet inextricably tied together, Hypotheticals combines scientific and poetic inquiry to startling effect.
