9780819567512: The Real Enough World (Wesleyan Poetry Series)

The Real Enough World speculates about the invention of self and world in the act of writing poems. Like orchestral movements, the poems vary in tonal qualities and speed, moving from sensibility-driven, antic poems through a deeply personal series of narratives to poems of philosophical reflection where landscape and love operate as tropes for each other. Underlying the whole is the poet’s sense that the material of life, as well as language, is insoluble and impermanent—humorous, tragic, absurd, joyous. Even when the mood of the book is most surreal, it is grounded in its accounts of the real enough.
