The Bride of E

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Poems by the author of "Elegy, "Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry

""
"The goblet mouth on the table speaks "
"To your thirst, saying, Longing, your longing, is infinite."
-from "H Is Here Is a Song, Now Sing"

In her sixth collection, "The Bride of E," Mary Jo Bang uses a distinctive mix of humor and directness to sound the deepest sort of anguish: the existential condition. Timeless yet tirelessly inventive, Bang fashions her examination of the lived life into an abecedarius that is as rapturous in its language and music as it is affecting in its awareness of--and yearning for--what isn't there. The title of the first poem, "ABC Plus E: Cosmic Aloneness Is the Bride of Existence," posits the collection's central problem, and a symposium of figures from every register of our culture (from Plato to Pee-wee Herman, Mickey Mouse to Sartre) is assembled to help confront it. Riddled with insight, pathos, and wit, "The Bride of E" is a brilliant new work by one the most compelling poets of our time.
