Descripción

"Like Jasy Wright's previous poetry, BOLEROS provokes in the reader 'a passion for what us hidden,' wmphasizing names-of places, muses, saint's days-and the imaginatve histories behind them. As always, the linguistic surface changes rapidly as Wright's geographic journeys become explicit explorations of poetic form. BOLEROS is more than a conventional collection of poems. Each part of the book connects to, engages with, and changes the others, so the book itself becomes a text in motion. These poems perform the creative process itself and secceed exquisitely in making the reader part of that process and its excitement." This book has 95 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Sinopsis:


Like Jay Wright's previous poetry, Boleros provokes in the reader "a passion for what is hidden," emphasizing names--of places, muses, saints' days--and the imaginative histories behind them. As always, the linguistic surface changes rapidly as Wright's geographic journeys become explicit explorations of poetic form. Boleros is more than a conventional collection of poems. Each part of the book connects to, engages with, and changes the others, so the book itself becomes a text in motion. These poems perform the creative process itself and succeed exquisitely in making the reader part of that process and its excitement.


From Library Journal:

This fascinating collection cannot be appreciated in a single reading. Numbered, untitled poems run across section headings, moving from complexity to what might best be termed "learned simplicity." The 46-page meditative title poem might be described as a lover's spiritual journey, traversing time and space, from America to Mexico to Scotland, from Self to Other. This poem is ambitious and difficult, but moments of lyric beauty are scattered throughout. "Saints' Days," the book's second section, is slightly more accessible. Mixing American slave heritage with Christian Mexico, the intertwined autobiographic narrative carries readers through a somewhat confusing sense of time and place. And finally, there are the relatively disappointing short poems that end the volume but do not, as Wright seems to have intended, provide a "Coda." For larger collections.
