9780807136454: Self-Portrait With Expletives: Poems (Lena-Miles Wever Todd Poetry Series Award)

"I swear Kevin Clark's Self-Portrait with Expletives is the book I've have been waiting to read -- the book in which the past and present are not strangers, but lovers. Clark's ecstatic poems time-travel with alacrity on their quest for transformation and song. Intimate, hilarious, attentive, political, Self-Portrait with Expletives is a mature, commanding book by a poet confident in his craft. It's also a book with a wide and wonderful boyish grin." -- Denise Duhamel
"From these pages flows a warm and breathy voice that sings up the Tuscan countryside but also traffics in the quiddities of hardscrabble Americana: beers drunk, cars wrecked, guns fired, songs sung, lovers kissed and missed. It's as though there's nothing this voice can't say; it's personal, provocative, and I want to hear it again and again." -- David Kirby

Book Description:

Divided into four sections, Self-Portrait with Expletives is a book of twenty poems demonstrating the way some American men self-consciously pursue love, friendship and art. In an age when certain heterosexual male behavioral traits are compulsory, even though obviously foolish and self-defeating, the book's language and imagery often press against conventional decorum.Frank and humiliating, velocitous and lyric, erotic and confessional, the book is a personal and public portrayal of what it means to be male in the twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Kevin Clark is also the author of In the Evening of No Warning. His poetry and criticism appear frequently in such journals as the Georgia Review, Antioch?Review, and Contemporary Literary Criticism. Clark teaches at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and the Rainier Writing Workshop.
