Descrizione articolo

From Publishers Weekly:

In this markedly original collection, a variety of themes remains constant--the pleasures and difficulties of love, the struggle for empathy with others--all seen through a distinctly elegiac eye. At the same time that he bows to the probability of loss, Knott's ( Becos ) primary concern is emotional engagement. With puissance, he urges the acceptance of the world as a fractured reality in which value is determined by individual perception: "The way the world is not / Astonished at you / . . . Leads me to think / That beauty is natural, unremarkable, / And not to be spoken of / Except in the course of things /. . . And the course of course of me / Astonished at you / The way the world is not." Juxtaposed with poems of conventional lengths are various "Shorts/Excerpts"--series of succinct but memorable sentences: "Our farewells lack the plausibility of our departures." The consequent syncopation in the volume ultimately serves to emphasize the moments of clarity throughout.
