9780978600969: If You Like Difficulty: Poems

Jan Clausen's witty, resourceful poems turn on a dime from abab formal to text message-y digital, hugging the curves of language with precision and wild glee. "Tufts of dithyramb" thrust from the cracks of a staggered republic, her verses had me feeling we're just one good ablation away from making things right & new. In the "struggle/to alchemize syntax/ out of just feeling fuckd," it's Jan who wins hands-down "aqui/la luz/ resumes."
--Rodney Koeneke, author of Musee Mechanique (BlazeVOX) and Rouge State (Pavement Saw Press)

About the Author:

Jan Clausen was born in North Bend, Oregon, in 1950. Clausen attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, majoring in philosophy and dropping out after her junior year. She wrote poetry and began to publish in little magazines. In 1973, she moved to New York City, and soon came out into a vibrant lesbian feminist community, finding an audience for her writing via its poetry readings and growing small press movement. She cooperatively published her first book, the poetry collection after touch, in 1975. Since 1989, Clausen has taught creative writing at Eugene Lang College, Manhattan, where she is active in her faculty labor union, ACT-UAW. She also teaches in the Goddard College MFA Writing Program.
