9780810151833: The Scarlet Ibis

In The Scarlet Ibis, Susan Hahn has created an intricately structured sequence of interlinked poems centered around the single compelling image of the ibis. The resonance of this image grows through each section of the book as Hahn skillfully employs theme and variation, counterpoint and mirroring techniques. The ibis first appears as part of an illusion, the disappearing object in a magician’s trick, which then evokes the greatest disappearing act of all—death—where there are no tricks to bring about a reappearance. The rich complexity multiplies as the second section focuses on a disappearing lady and a dramatic final section brings together the bird and the lady in their common plight—both caged by their mortality, their assigned time and role.  All of the illusions fall away during this brilliant denouement as the two voices share a dialogue on the power of metaphor as the very essence of poetry. bird trick iv
 
It’s all about disappearance.
 
About a bird in a cage
with a mirror, a simple twist
on the handle at the side
that makes it come and go
 
at the magician’s insistence.
 
It’s all about innocence.
It’s all about acceptance.
It’s all about compliance.
It’s all about deference.
It’s all about silence.
 
It’s all about disappearance.

About the Author:

Susan Hahn is a poet, playwright, and the editor of TriQuarterly magazine. She is the author of six books of poetry and the recipient of many awards for her poems, including a 2003 Guggenheim Fellowship. The Chicago Tribune named her fourth book, Holiday (Chicago, 2001), and her fifth book, Mother in Summer (Northwestern, 2002), among the Best Books of 2002. Her first play, Golf, was produced in 2005 by Circle Theater in Forest Park, Illinois. 

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Hahn's lustrous and spiky poems radiate from a thematic nucleus in her distinctive collections, a death in Mother in Summer (2002), the body in Self/Pity (2005). In her piquant seventh book, an archly theatrical yet powerfully emotional work in three acts, Hahn's evolution as a playwright is evident. Here Hahn's attunement to the body's mysteries and vulnerabilities, her coy sexiness and sly wit give rise to a complex, imaginative, slightly surreal encounter between a scarlet ibis and a "lady" (such a loaded word). Crescent-billed, its red wings tipped with black, the scarlet ibis comes into focus as a living icon as Hahn considers the bird's links to ancient Egypt and ibis-headed Thoth. The god of writing, science, and magic, it is Thoth who judges the dead. Hahn's mettlesome scarlet ibis is a captive forced to perform tricks, as is the lady, a magician's assistant. As Hahn takes measure of the implications of servitude and invisibility, it is clear that both bird and lady (she has roots in Dachau) are facing extinction. Hahn's quicksilver poem-play is brilliant in its misdirection, camouflaging with plumage and word magic great depths of feeling and insight. Donna Seaman
