Contraportada:

One of poetry s mavens . . . Gregerson s poetics seek truth through the precise apprehension of the beautiful while never denying the importance of rationality. Chicago Tribune

In this landmark work, her first collected volume, prize-winning poet Linda Gregerson mines nearly forty years of poetry, bringing together the full breadth of her astonishing vision.

Linda Gregerson s work ranges broadlyin subject from class in America to our world s ravaged environment to the wonders of parenthood tothe intersection of science and art to the passion of the Roman gods, and beyond. With ten new poems and fifty poems culled from her five collections, Prodigal reinforces her standing as a brilliant stylist, known for her formal experiments as well asher perfected lines, but also her reputation for great vision. Here, the growth of her art and the breadth of her interests offer a snapshot of a major poet s intellect in the midst of her career.

Gregerson manages to pair narrative immediacy with intricate orchestration, creating a kind of writing that hustles us along even as it reaches back through complicated echoes of earlier moments. Los Angeles Review of Books

[Gregerson s poetry] refuses the disparate, rewarding us instead with the gifts of improbable fusion. National Book Award Panel Citation
LINDA GREGERSON s honors include a Guggenheim fellowship, four Pushcart Prizes, a Kingsley Tufts Award, and the selection of Magnetic North as a National Book Award finalist. Gregerson is a professor at the University of Michigan. Her poetry has appeared in the Atlantic, The New Yorker, Poetry, the Yale Review, and many other publications. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Críticas:

A truly interdisciplinary thinker, Gregerson reaches through literature, art, and the everyday to find territory in which the confounding conditions of our age still give rise to understanding and empathy. "Publishers Weekly"
"The breadth of poetic creativity in National Book Award finalist Gregerson s grand compilation is beautiful in scope, elastic in space, and spectacularly aware and erudite. As she considers Roman gods, the limits of Earth, art, and politics, her use of delicate detail and experimental forms create a vibrant tapestry, while more ethereal subjects and language together coalesce into an introspective pattern of discovery. Ten brilliantly etched new poems followed by a hand-picked collection of 50 poems from her previous five collections, spanning from "Fire" "in the Conservatory "(1982) to "The Selvage "(2012), make this one of the most important poetry volumes of the season."" "Mark Eleveld, "Booklist""

The next time someone asks me what advantage poetry holds over prose, I will point to these lines, which move beyond the description of pain to its tangible embodiment Gregerson attains what few contemporary poets even seek: a plausible 'we, ' a basis for speaking across the lines of individual circumstance and social identity. Dan Chiasson, "The New Yorker"
"Dizzyingly ambitious and fiercely beautiful...The pleasures of such a retrospective are the pleasures of long acquaintance, and with Gregerson, those pleasures are both sensual and intellectual. The poems gorgeousness of sound and image is checked by a ferocious, sometimes acerbic, always morally demanding intelligence, at once plangent and analytic." The Atlantic Online
""Prodigal" is the testament of an American stoic, with one foot in the Dust Bowl of her ancestors and the other firmly planted in modern theories of biological determinism...Amazing, "Prodigal" shows us, to think what we've amounted to, considering where we're from. Srikanth Reddy, "New York Times Book Review"
""Prodigal "by Linda Gregerson, tenderly considers a wide range of topics: personal, political, literary. The speaker s clear vision and vast understanding are balanced by deep empathy. The 10 new poems draw from Roman mythology, pairing ancient wisdom with modern situations and concerns. That duality grounds the writing and provides wry insights into the desires of mortals, as in the second poem, 'The Wrath of Juno, ' in which the goddess reflects on women s longing for children and offhandedly mentions in vitro fertilization. The selected poems, from five earlier collections, create their own mythologies as Gregerson develops a style as distinctive for its jagged line lengths as for its compelling logic. Many poems feature deeply moving narratives about family traumas, loss and illness, the frailties of the body, and the longing for a divine presence. Some of the most affecting work focuses on children who ve been abused by loved ones or who abuse themselves. In the title poem, the speaker describes a teenager whose skin 'was almost otherworldly, touch/ so silken it seemed another kind/ of sight.' Yet 'she takes/ her scissors to that perfect page.'"" Washington Post"
"Gregerson s syntax will make your heart stop. These are radiant poems about all manner of chance and misfortune. Gregerson makes us realize all the suffering adjacent to us in daily life." "The New Yorker," "Twelve Books of Poems, About Poems, or Tangentially Related to Poems from 2015"
