This Nest, Swift Passerine: A Poem
, 2009 - Poetry
- 56 pages
Poetry. One of the most acclaimed new poets in America entwines found and original texts, creating literal form--this book--out of sheer metaphor. In this language nest, the mind of poet and reader find a common dwelling place. Through this collaged material ("used" motifs running through include Echo and Narcissus, spider webs, and philosophy), the author reveals the nest of the mind/book as a never wholly original structure, but one that forms from found material.
