Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Accept the challenge things offer to language. For instance these carnations defy language. I won't give up until I have put together a few words that will make anyone reading or hearing them say-- this has to do with something like a carnation. Is that poetry? I have no idea, and it scarcely matters. For me it is a need, a commitment, a rage, a matter of self-respect and that's all there is to it....

2 Contrast it to calm, rounded flowers-- arum, lilies, camellias, tuberoses. Not that it is crazy, but it is violent (though well compacted, put together within reasonable limits)

3 At stem-tip, the luxurious marvels of its linen come unbuttoned from a toggle, unbudded from a supple node of leaves. Carnations, those marvelous rags. How clean they are.

4 Breathing them in, you feel a pleasure whose other side would be a sneeze. Seeing them, the pleasure you feel at the sight of the underpants, with fine cut lace, of a young girl who cares for her linens.
