TATIANA IVAN doesn't do bios, baby

To the Unlikely Stories home pageDisturbingly enough, I get a lot of poems that use computers, programming languages, and Internet chat rooms as symbols. I try to reject these things as quickly as possible, but sometimes a writer will use it to such positive effect that I have no choice but to admit that the poem is a quality piece. Tatiana Ivan is such a writer.

Not that all of her poems are about computers: she talks about dreams, nightmares, indecision, and the most personal aspects of life. Whatever her symbol is at any given moment, her imagery is direct, clear, and immensely satisfying.

Drop Tatiana a line at tatiana@brandeis.edu.
