Prose Poetry. In REPRESENTATION, language meets deity as seamlessly as pens blossom into one-winged angels and a wave in a physics lab carries out Christ's commandment to perfection. What seems simple is never arbitrary, and line by line the reader discovers they have been led into surprising but welcome territory. "The music of the mind is brought into congruence with the music of the page, of the arbitrary but beautiful and delicate words themselves--and the sense is left to fend for itself"--Bin Ramke. Liz Waldner is the author of HOMING DEVICES and A POINT IS THAT WHICH HAS NO PART, winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize and the Academy of American Poets Laughlin Prize for 2000. Her most recent book of poems is SELF AND SIMULACRA.
