9781478715863: Jacaranda: (Tails Before Bed)

In Jacaranda: (Tails Before Bed), E. W. Bosworth shares personal dilemmas nevertheless common to us all. The scope of his engagement with life's contradictions, including his subtle evocation of the great antinomies - thought and feeling, sound and silence, comfort and unrest - is evident from one page to the next, one stanza to the next, and frequently within the precarious balance of a single line. This is Bosworth's individual response to the uniformity of post-post-modernism in contrast to which he offers a unique voice indicative of what he names "postmodern formalism". Asked in an interview of May, 2012, to clarify that term, he responded: "Since about 1970 American poetry has become increasingly dedicated to evincing a psychology of deconstructive theory in which the persona, the proffered speaker, is determined above all to avoid direct statement (logocentrism) with the result that indirection has become, repeatedly, the "new" direction in putative service of a transcendental subjectivity. But the human ego is not so easily dismissed, nor will its individual goals submit to categorical erasure. The poetic method of group-theory is programmatic to the extent that in the typical journal it is difficult to distinguish originality from consent. From an aesthetic perspective, there could be no more telling evidence of logocentricity than that. A postmodern formalism must embody, must demonstrate, must enact the contradictions inherent in a systematic denial of history."

Review:

Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite 5 STARS
It is difficult to ignore Bosworth's poems as they draw us into his varied experiences. Much of Bosworth's poetry is inspired by the people and events that surround him, but there are also flowers, birds, snow, philosophy, history, and the human struggle. In the first lines of 'Parole', he writes: "Looking into the Jacaranda is/ looking into your life/ No wonder there's so much simile/ on top of simile." This is an enjoyable and insightful book of poetry.

Reviewed by Rich Follet for Readers' Favorite       4 STARS
E.W. Bosworth's "Jacaranda: Tails Before Bed" is an erudite, quirky, conversational, cynical, witty and winning collection of poems indefatigably designed to index the myriad conundrums and contradictions of simple human existence in an increasingly complex world. Its ironies flow like honeyed wine, intoxicating the reader unawares. The result is a volume of extraordinarily accessible poems that manage to marry colloquial charm and existential angst in mind-expanding ways.
