Resistance fantasies: poems
Thiel uncovers layers of meaning in the evocative title-from resistance against regimes and oppression, to explorations of our darkner natures, to our inner trysts with longing and desire. The book continues themes from Thiel's critically acclaimed "Echolocations"-connecting personal with historical, language with lineage, and the effects of war on future generations-but visits new physical and emotional terrains-the Black Sea, the double edge of resistance. Thiel achieves a unique lyrical intensity. Her blend of myth and history, gravity and humor, passion and compassion, and the explicit with the suggestive makes Thiel's poetry hard to resist.
Diane Thiel teaches at the University of New Mexico.
