Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[W]hat makes MODERN LIFE more than just another neatly accomplished collection from a neatly accomplished poet are two long, strange, nervous sequences: "The Future of Terror" and "Terror of the Future." These are among the most arresting poems yet written about the current American political atmosphere, and they're all the more surprising coming from a writer whose sensibility seems so resistant to our usual ideas about "political poetry." But then, our usual ideas are often not our best ones."

David Orr, New York Times Book Review, 02/17/2008

Book Description: Graywolf Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 228 x 154 mm. Brand New Book. Matthea Harvey s Modern Life introduces a new voice that tries to exist in the gray area between good and evil, love and hate. In the central sequences, The Future of Terror and The Terror of the Future, Harvey imagines citizens and soldiers at the end of their wits at the impending end of the world. Her prose pieces and lyrics examine the divided, halved self in poems about centaurs, ship figureheads, and a robot boy. Throughout, Harvey s signature wit and concision show us the double-sided nature of reality, of what we see and what we know. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781555974800
