Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Tony Tost's exhilarating poetry debut defies conventional description. Like a fantastic film, a feverish delirium, or a dream state, these prose poems use an experimental lexicon of imagery that goes beyond anything typically poetic. Tost's point of departure is the loss of the Other that makes the It Agnes. And in a sort of coming-of-age soliloquy song, he meditates on a range of topics: fatherhood, childhood, identity, poetry. Together his poems express the unburdening of consciousness, a consciousness that contains the likes of Blake, Italo Calvino, Allen Grossman, and Frank Stanford, among others (including Tost himself). Surreal and surprising, Invisible Bride showcases the prose artistry of a new American talent.
