Sinopsis:

Book by Hinsey Ellen

Críticas:

""Update on the Descent"is another remarkable collection. The book is very much an integrated design, made up of three sections: The Human Element, Testimony, and Midnight Dialogue; the whole is described by the author as 'a meditation on the extremes of the human condition' and in its use of a variety of forms--including lyrics, aphorism, and philosophical prose--and its employment of an extensive system of allusion and quotation (from literary and non-literary sources), the book has the complexity and the emotional/moral weight of a great piece of symphonic music." --"Acumen: Literary Journal"

"Socially investigative and morally exegetic, Hinsey never crosses over into didactics. Her dialectic is composed of inventive arrangements that blend prose and aphorisms into prayer-like equations. In 'Transcript, ' she alternates between italicized questions and reasoned responses. Between the horrors of war, she struggles to find 'sanctity, ' 'mercy, ' 'knowledge, ' and 'love.' . . . Powerful and original, "Update on the Descent"is an urgent, probing book." --"The Brooklyn Rail"

"[Hinsey] writes breathtakingly beautiful lyrics abut the slight possibilities of hope for renewal, she composes aphorisms that capture the horror and the paradoxical humour of human actions, and she also writes anti-lyrics that one ends by believing any serious poet is compelled to do once she looks out on our current affairs and reflects on our history. . . . "Update on the Descent "makes demands on the reader--philosophical, personal and political but demands that are important to respond to, given the exquisitely achieved nature of every line in this slim volume of intensely updated / intense, up-to-date poetry." --"The Warwick Review"
