Synopsis: A gathering of poems and penetrating sequences (which have for the past few years been appearing in literary magazines and at times in separate, smaller editions) by the noted American poet, translator, and anthologist. Published by Graywolf Press, 2402 University Avenue, Suite 203, Saint Paul, MN 55114. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
From Library Journal:
This lively collection, Poulin's eighth, contains an inventive "Bestiary of Angels," from the "Angels of the American Dream" to the "Angel of Zealots," and many poems that probe the wonders of nature and science as well as personal and national destiny. Religious and political in the most profound sense, the poems are never doctrinaire. As in his recent A Momentary Order ( LJ 12/87), Poulin is preoccupied with questions of survival, seeing us all as "cave dwellers" who need to reinvent love. He's often unsettling in the way he sees ordinary life through the lens of eternity. In "Fireflies," the fatal illnesses of ancestors "flash and flash,/ a borealis in my clenched eyes./ They carve their shadows in this/ glass growing thinner every night./ A spark's ignited at the center of my skull. Soon we'll all be free." Recommended.
