The role of proper names and their power over both named and namer is a subject Sekiguchi has addressed in her critical work. Now she returns to the theme in these poetic prose blocks. Set in a Portuguese botanical garden, they reconstruct the plant, animal, and aviary worlds through the lens of language--a Wittgensteinian language that dreams of impossible precision while actually constructing a kaleidoscope that interleaves the boundaries of its subjects until the myriad forms that life can assume become a single, triumphant category.
