First of all understand that this review is coming from a trans woman who loves poetryThe fact of the matter is that after you get past feeld's High Middle English gimmick there is very little of substance here Charles repeats phrases ad nauseam so much so that reading this book feels like reading the same poem sixty times While the spelling allows for some puns and double meanings tran transtrain hors horsehourswhores feeld feelfield etc what it adds in wordplay and aesthetics it detracts from accessibility and comprehensibility I had to spend several minutes deciphering each poem and ultimately they were not very good aside from a few beautiful and moving individual turns of phrase i was inn love with a famyne i was inn love with the ded did u kno not a monthe goes bye a tran i kno doesnt dyeI get what Jos Charles is trying to do with the Middle English really I do but the promising concept falls flat in its execution i am a mothe i am a brocken hors in a feeld of linden treees outsyde the feemale depositrie room mayde off a sirfase off folde and metall gendre is not the folde pretty much sums the entire collection up feeld simply isn't worth your time

feeld author Jos CharlAne gendre is yes a hemorage” “did u kno not a monthe goes bye a tran i kno doesnt dye” The world of feeld is our own but off kilter distinctly ueer making visible what was formerly and forcefully hidden trauma liberation strength and joy Urgent and vital feeld composes a new narrative of what it means to live inside a marked body. With her oldmiddle english take on a contemporary issue at least in terms of rhetoric Jos Charles's Feeld simultaneously envelops and distances the reader from the narrative of trans experience while providing an accordion like layer structure to each phrase in her fascinating book The unorthodox spellings based on earlier forms of the english language—I'm not sure how close an approximation was made to middle or early english but the word chaucerian was bandied about at book club allowed a multiplicity of interpretations for almost every line when read instead of heard which opened up the space for intricate punning and for metaphor The very word feeld becomes conflated with the female experience; a field as an open vessel for things to be grownsomething fallow and waiting—but also with the past tense of feel when spoken aloud it sounds like feeled a clumsy felt; does it mean literal touch the sensation of physical contact or an admission that the book is something emotive and personal One example—hors became both horse and hoarse broken to bridle and without voice Striking and subtle at the same time This interplay of possibilities makes the book something that could be linguistically unpacked for hours on end but it also is a potential barrier between the reader and the material—and the argument could be made that now is not the time in history to put barriers between the reading public and reading material about the experience of someone from a marginalized community TL;DR It's brilliant but only if you're going to be dogged enough to do a good bit of work on trying to manage its wildness And maybe that asks too much
