Temper (09 Edition)by Beth Bachmann
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Temper is at once violent and controlled, unflinching and unforgiving in temperament. The poems are mercilessly recursive, placing pressure on the lyric as a mode of both the elegiac and the ecstatic. The result is an enforced silence, urgent with grief.
Winner of the 2008 Donald Hall Prize in Poetry
Selected by Lynn Emanuel
The elegies in Temper interrogate the way grief leaves us confrontational, in a state of fracture.
