Break Every Rule: Essays on Language, Longing, and Moments of Desire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking work of ecstatic criticism, Carole Maso shows why she has risen, over the past fifteen years, as one of the brightest stars in the literary firmament. Ever refusing to be marginalized or categorized by genre, Maso is an incisive, compassionate writer who deems herself daughter of William Carlos Williams, a pioneer in combining poetry and fiction with criticism, journalism, and the visual arts. She is daughter, too, of Allen Ginsberg, who also came from Paterson, New Jersey. Known for her audacity, whether exploring language and memory or the development of the artistic soul, Maso here gives us a form-challenging collection, intelligent, and persuasive.

About the Author

Carole Maso is the author of seven books including Ghost Dance and Break Every Rule. She is a professor of English at Brown University.
