Editorial Reviews

Review

Reader, you won't be disappointed with this book, I promise. You will learn so much about looking, within the self and beyond. You will glean the wisdom of someone who has been writing her way toward a deeper knowing for a long time, then showing what she has learned simply and artfully through the things of this world. For instance: "The future is a paper airplane hitting me in the face.//It never lands softly."

Julie Marie Wade from The Rumpus

___________________

The poems in Hourglass Museum may be triggered by visual art and artists, but they read as Kelli Russell Agodon's very personal struggle with making poetry and living with the consequences--artistic, social, emotional. It's an intelligently conceived and moving collection, and the greatest pleasure of all is the line-by-line revelation of the poems, which are always lively, witty (even when they are sad), surprising, musical, addictive. Reading these poems is a joy.
 
~ Kathleen Flenniken, Washington State Poet Laureate 

From the Author

The poems in Hourglass Museum explore living life with an undeniable yearning to create. 
I tried to create a reckoning throughout the book, a balancing of the scales between art and life. Many of the poems in this manuscript rely on art--famous and otherwise--to explore relationships and to help interpret life and the world around us. I am interested in how art influences us and how images and interactions with art can carry us from one place to another, such as seeing a painting of a fig tree then having it bring back a memory of one's childhood home. 
 
In this book, I tried to created a paper museum.  The book is divided into different exhibits from portraits to a sketchbook of nudes. I allowed art from artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Joseph Cornell, Andy Warhol, and Beauford Delaney to influence my writing.  Sometimes I find myself feeling almost overwhelmed with the beauty created by others and this book reflects that as well as the vulnerability (and sometimes unbalance) we may feel while living as artists in the world.
