Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published in 1994, Crystallography was a gem of a book, an instant hit that was nominated for the Gerald Lampert Award. It has been unavailable for an ice age, and Coach House Books is proud to bring it back. 'Crystallography' means the study of crystals, but also, taken literally, 'lucid writing.' The book exists in the intersection of poetry and science, exploring the relationship between language and crystals. Lucid, sparkling, a diamond of a book: Crystallography is a crystal-clear approach to the science of poetry from the author of Eunoia.

Review:

"Quite literally a groundbreaking book of poems....Page after page, Bök demonstrates that 'science' and 'poetry' can be one and the same — indeed, that today science is our poetry. I really love the book!" Marjorie Perloff

Review:

"[T]he precision throughout is uncanny, the beauty almost inhuman. Bök is a bachelor machine rigged out with snowblower and diamond saw, ready to play the glass harmonica at your winter wedding." Village Voice

Synopsis:

Poetry. Second, revised edition. One of the ongoing misfortunes of small press publishing is that even much talked-about books of poetry often go out of print quickly, and stay out of print. But Coach House has reissued Christian Bok's remarkable CRYSTALLOGRAPHY (1994) for a new decade of readers. "CRYSTALLOGRAPHY is quite literally a groundbreaking book of poems. Here crystals come alive in a dramatic interplay of optic anomalies that magnify vision. I love this book!"--Marjorie Perloff. Book is the author of the bestselling EUNOIA (also available from SPD), which won the Griffin Price for Poetic Excellence in 2002.
