Abstract

The article discusses the poetic strategy of Philip Metres in the level of torture at the Abu Ghraib's victims. It describes the physical pain that applies to the attempt of inventing linguistic structures to accommodate the experience of torture in poetry. The article also discusses the sworn statements of the detainees at Abu Ghraib prison which created complications in making their testimonies. [Ebsco Host]
