9781936797288: Body Thesaurus

In her second book, Jennifer Militello investigates the tensions of identity as a source of illness and health. Body Thesaurus presents the human physique as a flawed conduit and, through poems highlighting symptoms, antidotes, and diagnostic tests, seeks alternate renderings for the complexities of self. Even as the endangered psyche supplies a filter, gods are confronted, maladies are faced, and actualities are marked, remembered, or lost. The beauty of struggle and the chance for redemption act as counterstream, increasingly evident and--again and again in the poet's verse--indisputably real.

About the Author:

Jennifer Militello is the author of Flinch of Song, winner of the Tupelo Press First Book Award, and Body Thesaurus, named a finalist for the Alice Fay di Castagnola Award by Marilyn Hacker. Her work has appeared in American Poetry Review, The Kenyon Review, The New Republic, The North American Review, The Paris Review, Ploughshares, and Best New Poets 2008. She is also the author of the chapbook Anchor Chain, Open Sail.

Review:

"Militello is one of our richest younger poets, and the poems of Body Thesaurus are opulent in their 'goldrush want.' 'Dear body I do not resent, / experiment with me,' she implores.  Body Thesaurus is a haunted and haunting voyage through the body's analogies, which expand to embrace whole worlds:  the sensual, the material, and the spiritual." -- G. C. Waldrep --Advance Praise
