One of Three Finalists for the 2007 $50,000 Griffin Poetry Prize!

In Ontological Necessities Priscila Uppal investigates the emotional and philosophical struggle fundamental to notions of being in the 21st century. From poems that explore questions of identity (who is anyone, anyway?) to those that attempt to examine human relationships with the onslaught of horrors depicted daily in the news, this collection uses surrealist and absurdist language in subversive and startling ways to grapple with an increasingly absurd world. Written with the verve of the uninhibited artist but with a clarity of thought and expression more akin to the scientist or scholar, these poems are utterly contemporary and fully aware of the past; a necessary tonic for our times.
