About the Author:

MARTIN CORLESS-SMITH is a native of Worcestershire, England. He teaches poetry and literature in the Creative Writing MFA Program at Boise State University. He is the author of Nota (2003), Complete Travels (2000), and At Piscator (1997).

Review:

"Swallows reminds us of course that writing great lyric is painstaking. On several occasions Corless-Smith seems almost obsessed with his own limitations, presenting cross-outs and revealing the indecision involved in realizing a poem--whether outlining an idea is necessary, or letting it lie implicit with fragment presents a truer truth. So those who've done it well are to be celebrated, and that they can be celebrated by exiting the limitations of the flat reality of things as they are and inhabiting the impossible house of language they unwittingly constructed. In the end, the book--the poet too? Up to you--possesses a mania that leaves you feeling you've been there to return."--John Deming, www.coldfrontmag.com

Book Description Fence Magazine Inc, Division of Fence Books, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Swallows draws on the various metaphorical implications of the House in its exploration of the uncanny presence and absence of self and world in poetry. From poems concerned with the eighteenth-century inquiry into the whereabouts of Horace s Sabine Villa - a search determined to locate an actual physical site behind Horace s celebrated verse - to poems in the final section transcribed from the walls of a house, these poems acknowledge the desire for the presence of the physical in the written, while understanding the necessary distance between writing and the world. Throughout the book, swallows act as a kind of genius loci: presences that arrive and depart continually. Seller Inventory # AAC9780977106424
