Editorial Reviews

Review

From the smoldering wreckage of a battle-scarred Iraq to "the last unmuzzled throatful of air," Elyse Fenton's debut collection clamors with such exigency that it drops us right into the danger zone. Her art is precise, persistent and volatile when deployed to the front lines. But also, sparing: a "human camera" embedded within a relationship tested by the distance from battlefield to home. This book certainly has its disquietude but how else to measure the brutality of the world? The recompense of it, though, is Fenton s passionate eloquence; her unfaltering fidelity to the word. --D. A. Powell

Elyse Fenton's Clamor connects the forward operating bases in Iraq with the homefront here in America. It is a necessary poetry which brings us "the work of shrapnel;" "the thing that, trying and trying / you can never spit out" (while continually recognizing that there is always more to give). In keeping with the best traditions of war poetry, the underlying subjects of Clamor are love and loss. Clamor is a book that refuses to turn away. It exists within the deeply personal, the deeply private, and yet as the poems finish within the reader it is a work which ultimately speaks to the universal. --Brian Turner

With lines that show an unyielding dedication to craft, these poems are not afraid of meaning or the meaningful. More and more every day, the thinking American asks how she is to believe in love when there is war all about her, and in each of her deeply felt lyrics, Elyse Fenton confronts this question with the kind of tenderness one lover reserves for another. If every poem is indeed a love poem, Clamor is indeed a debut worth reading and about which we must make noise. --Jericho Brown

Format: Paperback
Award winning and highly educated, Elyse Fenton brings readers much to enjoy in "Clamor". Discussing today's issues with the war and our place in the world and the need for peace among wars, she shows her love for poetry as well as getting a message out there. "Clamor" is not a read to be overlooked. "Endurance": I used to stand in doorways and know/there was no human way to go on or through.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as a requirement for a poetry class. I am not a big fan of poetry by nature (I prefer the novel form) and find poetry on the whole hard to be memorable. This was not the case with this book. There were a few times where I cringed and quite a few points where I had to put the book down, but this just goes to show how pwoerful of a poet Fenton really is.
