Money is a Kind of Poetry is a meditation on contemporary alienation and the processes by which every new technological advance seems to increase our isolation from each other, and the more connected we are the less we appear to know ourselves. Donnelly looks at the symbolic value of money, the dead language of economists and bankers and its shiny promises and slippery meanings. Accompanied by the Dante, Rimbaud and Paul Muldoon, he shows us a contemporary and violent vision of Hell in which ‘exchange rates slip like tectonic plates’ and ‘the money is digesting itself’.
