Chronicology by Olga Kolesnikova is a cursory examination of physical pain and discomfort, and a passing glance at pain’s effect on the psyche. Pain is presented throughout the collection in multiple ways – disorientated narratives, a rejection of and an overindulgence in the language surrounding the self, and body-centred images. In each poem, pain takes a different role; in some it is an integral part of the pained, and in others it exists independently and is experienced by no one. Together, these fragments offer a taste of all that could be said on the subject of pain.
