9780892552290: Last Chance for the Tarzan Holler: Poems

The latest volume of this important and highly original poet's work is a three-part journey into the pathology of human emotions. In a cascade of language -- ordinary speech, preaching, song, banter, erudition -- all that is good spirals into regions of horror and grotesque inconsistency with consequences as contemporary as headlines and as eternal as myth. Intense and brilliantly sustained, these poems limn the humane being tested, the plunge into strangeness, and finally recovery, the salvaging of wonder after all.
