A philosophical, tough, and often funny inquiry into twenty-first-century selfhood, Liz Waldner's new collection of poems takes shape in the shadow of Dante's "dark wood." Dark Would (the missing person) is quirky. It's audaciously American, out of the Dickinson house. Waldner uses short, quick syntactical units that swerve rather than build up an architecture of ideas through sequential juxtaposition. She also has, like Dickinson, a canny, carnal, specifying diction. Her poems are sonorous, sly, and sexy. They are political in their address of gender through reference to pop songs, poems, and analyses of personal experiences. The resulting wry permutations of will and desire alternately leaf and hew an American "dark wood." The pages and paths turn to and through the kinds of lostness and foundness to which rootlessness gives rise.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Here they give you the shadow of your hand.
Here they give you the shadow of your hair.
Here are people passing on a tour.
The shadow of a stem of grass forks just here.

Here is how to mend the passed:
hear wind move trees like this.
Add courtyard, sun, and dry
to the How Should We Live List.

--from "Being and Seeming, in Public"
