Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This small volume is both companion to and descendant of Yakich's award-winning Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross. Each poem here shares a title with a poem in the previous book. Each expands on its namesake poem, giving the background, but a background you've never imagined! When a poet as vital and innovative as Yakich is telling the story behind the poem, the vignettes and characters that emerge from behind the scenes are as exuberant and playful as the originals.

Mark Yakich's first book of poems, Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross, was a winner of the 2003 National Poetry Series. He is an assistant professor of English at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant.

Synopsis:

Poetry. THE MAKING OF COLLATERAL BEAUTY, a new book of poems by Mark Yakich, is both companion to and descendent of Yakich's award-winning "Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross". Here, each poem shares a title with a poem in the previous book, expanding in wondrous ways on its namesake. Though the work is partner to an earlier model, it nevertheless stands triumphantly on its own: the vignettes and characters that emerge from behind the scenes arrive exuberant, playful, and completely fresh. These stories are accurate as far as art goes, and as ever, art carries further than reality. "these were the pages I couldn't put down; I was in awe, I like being in awe, who doesn't, what's awe but a kind of collateral beauty?"--Mary Reufle. Winner of the 2004 Snowbound Series Award, judged by Mary Ruefle.
