About this title

From Library Journal:

Mariani's poetic personae are forever slipping through the trap doors that separate physical reality from the subjective yet somehow alien territory born of fear, guilt, and faith. Like Poe in ``Palimpsest,'' they understand ``how terror-riddled is the text/ of one's existence,'' and find themselves at odds with self-destruction and self-doubt, coping with a life in which the apocalyptic becomes quotidian, and where one's personal tragedies are played out on the peripheries of warfare and natural disasters. Beauty becomes a thing created by force of will or by sheer accident, as when a dreary highway landscape gives way to sky ``unfolding like some giant crocus.'' Confessional and visionary, these harrowing poems not only deserve attention, they wrest it away. Fred Muratori, Cornell Univ. Lib.
