About this title

Synopsis:

Poetry. "The Miranda of the brilliant opening sequence in Kathleen Aguero's new collection, DAUGHTER OF embodies Gilles and Guatarri's radical insight, from ANTI-OEDIPUS, that "the unconsciousness is an orphan and creates itself out of nature and man." Forged of equal parts will and insight, the Miranda who abandons her fate for the dark lore of her mother and brother is the mind and heart that course through all of the poems of this collection. Wide ranging and masterful in form, they wed sheer lyric gorgeousness with discursive gravity" Linda McCarriston. Be sure to check out Kathleen Aguero's other book, THE REAL WEATHER, also available from SPD.
