Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The poems in Palmer's new book may strike the reader as being in a state of constant disintegration. They reassemble, hold for a few lines, and fall to pieces again: "flower with a death's head at its center/center with a desert at its center/clock with ochre hands/its face a sun the sun/a multiple sun at 3 a.m./sun of limbs and sun of the lens/flower as it were a limb" and so on. At their best, the units that comprise the disintegration are compelling. But, then, evaluation is not the point. If meaning is exchanged in the culture of these poems, it's only by consenting adults and certainly shouldn't be an organized activity. There are those who take pleasure in this sort of thing, and this reviewer is one of them. Recommended for academic library collections.?Steven R. Ellis, Brooklyn P.L.

Format: Paperback
Michael Palmer's poems seem to me use the best strategies of language poetry in service of the romantic lyric.
This book is both Bread and Wafer (as Anais Nin put in a chapter of "Ladders to Fire") to me--it feeds the spiritual and intellectual heart and also satisfies the physical desire of real bodied pleasure.
