Pulitzer Prize–;winning poet Rae Armantrout is at once a most intimate and coolly calculating poet. If anyone could produce a hybrid of Charlie Chaplin's playful "Little Tramp" and Charlize Theron's fierce "Imperator Furiosa," it would be Armantrout. Her language is unexpected yet exact, playing off the collective sense that the shifting ground of daily reality may be a warning of imminent systemic collapse. While there are glimmers here of what remains of "the natural world," the poet confesses the human failings, personal and societal, that have led to its devastation. No one's senses are more acutely attuned than Armantrout's, which makes her an exceptional observer and reporter of our faults. She leaves us wondering if the American Dream may be a nightmare from which we can't awaken. Sometimes funny, sometimes alarming, the poems in Wobble play peek-a-boo with doom.

Review:

"With carefully planned havoc, Rae Armantrout takes a page from the jesters of old.―Matt Sutherland, Foreword Reviews Armantrout probes the place of sincerity in a post-modern cultural landscape in this formally dexterous and conceptually daring collection. [Her] intelligence and keen insight are equally present in the work's humor and cultural commentary.―Publishers Weekly (starred review) [Wobble] is a collection of tight, chiseled poems that forces readers to consider how greed, excess and lack of critical thought have led to environmental destruction and a nation wobbling toward the edge of collapse.―Elizabeth Lund, Washington Post With enjambment and double meanings, crystal-sharp images to muse on lost time and to take the private public.―C. Diane Scharper, Library Journal In language lean, intimate, and purposeful, this latest from Pulitzer Prize-winning Armantrout shifts constantly between public and private, abstract and concrete, known and unknown, surprising and delighting us as she delivers a sense of what's possible and of new ways of seeing."―Library Journal Best of 2018: Poetry
