Confession, the companion to Incontinence, Susan Hahn's previous prize-winning book of poetry, continues the probing, visceral account of the relationship of a woman with her estranged husband and her inconstant lovers. Ingenious, disturbing, Confession will enhance an already substantial following for this exceptional poet.

"Phoenix Poets is the most distinguished university press series going."—Alfred Corn

"Compressed, controlled, circumscribed by the artist's discipline, the poems in Susan Hahn's Confession do not spill over; each is like a steadily held cup containing its pain."—Alicia Ostriker

"Hahn's voice is unique and unforgettable . . . . Hahn's self-revelation is so startling, and her details so extraordinary, that she virtually detonates her poems with energy. . . . Plath, Ai, Sexton—Hahn brings to mind those vivid, violent poets, but her voice is clearly her own, strong and without either shrillness or shame."—Patricia Monaghan, Booklist

"In her third book of poems, Confession, Susan Hahn continues to refine her amazing capacity to disquiet, disgust and fascinate. This may not sound like a recommendation, but it is. . . . The precision of Hahn's language stands out even more clearly when compared to the looser, baggier free verse that dominates so much contemporary poetry."—Maureen McLane, Chicago Tribune

From the Back Cover:

'This is a book of terror and obsessions made palpable, made manifest in Hahn's hand. What gives these poems their power is both what is revealed and what is left out, disturbing our own center of gravity, letting us know the fascination and desperation of holding on.'--Cynthia Macdonald

Phoenix Poets is the most distinguished university press series going. --Alfred Corn Compressed, controlled, circumscribed by the artist s discipline, the poems in Susan Hahn s Confession do not spill over; each is like a steadily held cup containing its pain. -- Alicia Ostriker from Confession In the cabinet with the lattice opening, I confess to all the calls and hang ups--obsessions with the glands and muscles of the hair: follicle, papilla, blood vessel-- the soft bulb at root s bottom that I love to pull out and suck. I knew Krishna, Lucifer and Zeus, phoned them late at night but would not speak. . . . ( Confession first appeared in Boulevard. ) Confession, the companion to Incontinence, Susan Hahn s previous prize- winning book of poetry, continues the probing, visceral account of the relationship of a woman with her estranged husband and her inconstant lovers.
