Vertigo (National Poetry Series Books)by Martha Clare Ronk
Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. Melancholy and playful, analytic and lyrical, VERTIGO unlocks the language of the mind's theater as it immerses the reader in a dense realm of memory and multiple perspectives, repositioning our relations to daily life, the past, and the future. The poet C.D. Wright selected this book for the National Poetry Series and writes: "VERTIGO is as beckoning as it is unsettling. And vice versa." Ronk is also the author of In a Landscape of Having to Repeat, which won the PEN USA Poetry Award, and a professor of English and Comparative Literary Studies at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
A melancholy, visionary meditation on the mysteries and uncertainties of memory.
A National Poetry Series winner, chosen by C.D. Wright.
This visionary seventh collection by the PEN USA Award-winning poet pivots around uncertainties, mysteries, and the unexpected to find the language of the mind's theater. Melancholy and playful, analytic and lyrical, Vertigo immerses the reader in a dense realm of memory and multiple perspectives, repositioning our relations to daily life, the past, and the future.
