The Area of Sound Called the Subtone
Poetry. The Area of Sound Called the Subtone, Gordon's second full-length book, won the 2004 Sawtooth Poetry Prize, judged by Claudia Rankine. Rankine writes, "Noah Eli Gordon is a master of the shift between an epigrammatic and aphoristic line. Each utterance is a glance that implodes rhetorical strategies so spectacularly that the spray of intelligence that lingers in this reader's mind is not much different from a cooling shower from an illegally opened fire hydrant. Witty, vivid, and very, very vital, Gordon has entered a higher frequency"-Claudia Rakine.

Formally inventive, a machine of images. Does a lot of what I want poetry to do: question, declare, retract, contradict, threaten, and dissect. Read full review
