Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arthur Sze is one of the most intensely musical and visionary poets writing today The Redshifting Web spans more than a quarter-century of published work and makes available for the first time the full range of his poetry. It includes selections from five previous books (including the entirety of Archipelago, Dazzled, and River, River), as well as a generous selection of new poems.

Through a startling juxtaposition of images and ideas, Sze reveals the interconnectedness, the interdependency of things and ideas, always with an ear attuned to pitch and cadence. In his poetry, the past is ever-present, so that one finds Zen monks carrying fax machines, Hopi kachina dolls alongside Japanese pachinko parlors, plastic bowls among relics of the Han dynasty, the complexities of contemporary culture revealed as an elegant fabric woven of many threads.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive collection by one of the most intensely musical and visionary poets writing today.
