9781936797806: Words on the Street: Poems

Words on the Street is set in the center of a mystery. An infant is abducted and seven symbolic figures play their metaphoric fiddles while humanity is plagued by chronic threat, insecurity, and confusion. This is not a book for the faint of heart. It is to be read at the peril of complacency. It situates the reader in a landscape choked with graffiti, teeming with hearsay and falsehood. Human existence roils with questions about artifice and reality; the absurd and the comic; good and evil; the knowable and the unknowable. Above all, the words on the street, namely Anna Rabinowitz's words, pave the street we all inhabit, speaking from the primal core of the human predicament: the conundrum between two whys.

About the Author:

Anna Rabinowitz is a prize-winning poet and librettist. Previous poetry volumes are At the Site of Inside Out, winner of the Juniper Prize of the University of Massachusetts, Darkling, The Wanton Sublime, and Present Tense. Darkling and The Wanton Sublime, a chamber opera and a monodrama for mezzo-soprano, respectively, have been performed here and abroad to great critical acclaim.

Review:

"Rabinowitz offers poetry as story as near drama...Rabinowitz scatters lines across the ever-turning pages and dares you to follow. VERDICT For all rebels at heart. -- Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
