The book isn't all the joys of getting paid to get laid. Some pieces recount struggling with addiction and disorder, while others tell of violent clients who get off on beatings and brandings, but this isn't a narrator who goes down quietly. This is a fierce collection, told by a narrator who refuses to be a victim. She destroys her abusers, whether physically or through her own voracious appetite, calling to mind Plath's "Lady Lazarus": "Out of the ash/ I rise with my red hair/ and I eat men like air."
Brothel is a book that knows sex is about power, in which succumbing to temptation is simply a part of life. While some individual poems fall flat compared to the more impressive ones, this collection is more than worth the money, so don't worry. If you're tempted to read this, hit buy. You're in for a real good time.
In this collection, Wytovich takes us inside the world of Madam XXX. Once she has you, she doesn’t let you go, and you can never look away. The world of Brothel is one of visceral imagery and unrelenting honesty. The poems found inside pull back the curtain between right and wrong, black and white, and favor a swirling pool of grey. It’s Wytovich’s boldest and sharpest work to date, which is incredible considering the fantastic quality of her previous works.
Wytovich doesn’t simply place like-minded poems into a themed collection; she carves a narrative that invites and plays, punishes and forbids. Her poetry builds, rises and falls, and leaves you breathless as you move between the pages. The duality of human nature is explored thoroughly throughout the piece as Wytovich makes her readers ache for what they’ve left behind while yearning for what’s ahead.
The unflinching exploration of both darkness and eroticism speaks to Wytovich’s harmony with her craft. Through the investigation of love and lust, death and orgasm, and the sensual and the grotesque, Wytovich delves into subject matter few other poets could hope to capture so masterfully. Brothel isn’t the kind of collection you pick through or visit for a moment. It moves in with you, becoming flatmates with your soul.
While there’s much to be said about the subject matter found within Brothel, one can’t help being taken aback by the precise imagery and incredible descriptions that act as a guiding hand through Brothel. Wytovich paints a landscape with characters the reader will never forget, bringing each slap and stain to life.
Brothel an incredible collection written by one of the most skilled poets in the field. With Wytovich still so early in her career, I can’t wait to see where Wytovich takes her readers over the many years to come.
