Elementals This session will consist of a reading of ‘ Elementals: Auto-Reductive Sonnets in Major and Minor Modes,” a collection of original poetry inter-cut with selected quotations from such Church writers as Parley P. Pratt, John A. Widstoe, and Hugh Nibley. Taken together, the poems (which have been described as “nuclear-fused sonnets, free radicals one electron away from exploding”) and the quotations explore possibilities inherent in creation and the cosmos, blending Latter-day Saint thinking with scientific imagery.
