Nonfiction. Literary Criticism. Poetics.BOXING INSIDE THE BOX is a creative/critical work proposing "women's prose poetry" as a form distinct from that widely touted as "definitive" in journals, anthologies and critical texts. Iglesias believes that the shape of prose poems--a simple box--serves as a powerful metaphor for gender roles that constrain and contain women. Unlike most of their male counterparts who produce disembodied, ironic and surrealist prose poems, women write from within this genre-defiant box works that are at once lyrical and embattled, sensual and menacing.
