Synopsis: Poetry. Camille Guthrie transposes the pastoral themes of the medieval Unicorn Tapestries with those of modern, urban life in an ingenious re-imagining of both. Amidst her flora and fauna we encounter a lookout, a boyfriend, informants, hunters, poets, and a rock star--all fresh translations of familiar figures. Here the unicorn becomes a blank figure for the beloved, knowledge, and vision. The allegory of the hunt becomes the pursuit of the elusive prey of meaning. As in THE MASTER THIEF (subpress 2000), Guthrie agilely uses traditional and modern poetic forms. These fearless poems invite the reader to be startled by ideas and ambushed by beauty. "Camille Guthrie's sharp eye for lyric detail, her use of shifting connections, narrative fragments, quotations, and demarcations have produced a haunting and powerful collection of meditations. This sequence is the work of an impressive new voice in American poetry"--Susan Howe. "A captivating composition. A loving trap"--C.D. Wright.
About the Author: Camille Guthrie's debut, The Master Thief, was published by Subpress in 2000. She was born in Seattle and grew up in Pittsburgh. After studying poetry at Vassar College and Brown University, she settled in New York City, where she taught literature and creative writing at New York University and a Quaker high school. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals and Web sites, including Artkrush.com, BeardofBees.com, Bird Dog, Conjunctions, Chicago Review, The Gig, The Poetry Project Newsletter, and The Poker. Poems from The Master Thief were translated into French for the journal Arsenal. She was recently interviewed about In Captivity in the spring 2005 Chicago Review. Currently, she lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their baby son.
