9780810151451: The Hidden Model (Triquarterly Books)

From the huddling men in a Rembrandt print to an image in a bathroom mirror that might be Christ or a mere smudge, David Yezzi, with his precisely carved and subtly cutting language, questions and considers the surfaces of our perceptions and the life they conceal-that which suggests, asks, demands to be seen. In this deeply philosophical book, Yezzi deploys a mobile intelligence that reaches from the world of art to the landscape of the mind's cravings and demonstrates a capacious gift for using the formal techniques of poetry in unobtrusive and captivating ways, rendering verse that is both poetically rich and emotionally charged

About the Author:

David Yezzi is director of New York's 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center. His critical writings have appeared in the New York Times, New Yorker, and other major publications; and his poetry has appeared in the New Republic, Paris Review, Yale Review, New England Review, and other journals. This is his first book of poetry.

Review:

"David Yezzi has a musician's ear for nuance and color, a novelist's nose for detail and the dramatic moment. The Hidden Model is a rich, resonant collection of poems-its works precision-made-certain to delight at first, and likely to haunt ever after. A terrific book!"
--J. D. McClatchy


"The Hidden Model is one of the most impressive first books of poetry I have seen in some time. Yezzi's speculative energy and unusual intellectual integrity are appropriately and even beautifully served by the ways in which his very gifted verse controls pace and tone."

—John Hollander

"There is a benign unease in David Yezzi's poetic stance, at once dispassionate yet caring. He has the gift of incorporating his own, very individual perspective into his poems. His best are his uncanny interventions that fuse curious learning with formalistic desire for imaginative splendor: 'Aporias,' 'Sad is Eros, Builder of Cities,' 'Oracle of the Great Oak.'"

—Harold Bloom
