Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Julianne Buchsbaum's SLOWLY, SLOWLY, HORSES is a quietly furious book. Her language is as rich and eerily fascinating as bending down to look closely at something decomposing. But this is a different sort of nature poetry - her landscape is "a pasture of taints", and her close observation of nature is really a close observation of language. There is something of Wallace Stevens in her precision, her incredible diction, and in the way her descriptions are simultaneously direct and mythical. She is also a redeemer of the simile in an age that distrusts simile; her ease and originality with them 'lingers/ like the perfume of a woman/ who has rushed from the room.' Which is exactly the case with her poems" - Matthew Rohrer.

Synopsis:

Linguistically brilliant and challenging new voice.

Synopsis:

The linguistically fascinating first book by a poet who has been compared to Wallace Stevens. Her extreme precision and extraordinary diction distinguish this book from the crowd. Matthew Rohrer has called her work “simultaneously direct and mythical.”
