About this title

Synopsis:

Poems deal with nature, business, myth, religion, control, love, crime, freedom, and biography

From Library Journal:

In her first volume of poems, chosen by Amy Clampitt as the Walt Whitman Award winner for 1988, Bernard seems to follow Wallace Stevens's advice that "a poem should resist the intelligence almost successfully." Her poems do not lend themselves to easy interpretation. But while many readers will find them quirky and difficult, there is something intriguing about Bernard's bizarre juxtaposition of humor and horror, beauty and banality. From the shorter lyrics to the long title poem, Bernard struggles to "say something/ of these bad times" when "There are no aphorisms left" to sum up the complexity of experience. Those ready for the challenge will discover here an interesting new voice.
