9781938073397: x (McSweeney's Poetry)

In x, Dan Chelotti conjures voices that wander, pause, analyze, articulate, attempt to enlighten, fail to enlighten, and then answer that failure with laughter. The wildly inventive imagery in these cinematic pieces lodges them somewhere between the surreal and the pure symbol, colorful and smooth like the lyrics of John Ashbery or Linda Pastan. In Chelotti’s poems, diamonds talk and sheriffs balance frogs on the tips of pens.

The rain says, Listen to Debussy,
go ahead, Debussy will fix you.
From Migraine Cure”

The secret to including everything
is to intricately divide your mind
and then, all of a sudden,
undivide it.
From Still Life on a Scrolling Background”

About the Author:

Dan Chelotti is the author of a chapbook, The Eights (Poetry Society of America, 2006), which was selected by Yusef Komunyakaa for the PSA’s National Chapbook Fellowship.

Chelotti is an Assistant Professor of English at Elms College in western Massachusetts.

Review:

What is x? It is a revelation to read. This poet is here to guide us through the places we will go. I will follow him. So should you.” Dorothea Lasky

"Dan Chelotti’s x is a first book, but one that has the bracing clarity of old souls like Jack Gilbert, James Tate, Mary Ruefle and Yannis Ritsos, along with the sensitivities and bravery of a young poet. The thoughts in the poems leap gracefully, and associate with a new but always perceivable, never alienating logic. These poems take on our troubles, as well as our task: to make sense of without reducing the world." Matthew Zapruder

"O Madonna mia! This poetry it makes me to laugh! Dan Chelotti, I heart you!" Gary Shteyngart

"Dan Chelotti's poems spin and jump through fire landing on their feet, but wait, whose feet are they, really? They are magnificent contraptions with a heart of steel. They move me because they are real. I never know how they will turn out, and this is what keeps me reading. He's a poet with grace and beauty in his duffle bag, on his way to the front." James Tate

"Gripping and surprising. . . . Chelotti has gotten a remarkable start." Publishers Weekly

"Funny and sometimes mysterious...Pavarotti and cheap plastic pumpkins are all part of Chelotti's poetic stew." Shelf Awareness

X is delightful in its weirdness, surprisingly heartbreaking in its compassion” Grantland

"Dan Chelotti offers up verse in equal measures heartfelt and wry, almost always expressed in admirably straightforward language." Burlesque Press
