Book Details

From Greek mythology to the Amazon Echo smart speaker, Orlando restores the Ekh into a dynamic poetic voice. Ekho is a poem in three parts. Through poetic narrative, this work considers the ‘echo’ as a social and historical phenomenon. From Echo, the nymph of Greek mythology who’s voice was stolen by the gods, through to the advent of the Amazon Echo smart speaker, the echo has been described as a condition of voicelessness, unfulfilled desire, loss and entrapment. These poems reconsider echoing as a poetic practice, and as an orienting device that tunes the world into itself.
