Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2001 Barnard New Women Poets Prize Lise Goett, winner of the Paris Review Discovery Award and an Academy of American Poets Prize, is one of our most promising younger poets. Her powerful first book is reminiscent of the spiritual and passionate lyricism of Carolyn Forche's The Angel of History and should appeal to readers interested in the sacred tradition in literature.

"Goett's poems have an eloquence of feeling, and a freshness of movement." —Richard Howard

Synopsis:

The people in Lise Goett's stunning collection are waiting-restlessly, blindly, hopefully-for the one who gives succor, the Paraclete of the title. With a vision both expansive and acute, Goett takes in everything from a fishing accident in Wisconsin to a butcher's stall in Paris and even the life and death of Gary Gilmore, to focus with a rare combination of emotional exactitude and music on the forces that govern the world of the flesh as it transforms into the world of the spirit.

About the Author

Lise Goett's poetry has appeared in numerous journals, including the Paris Review, Ploughshares, and the Antioch Review. She lives in Taos, New Mexico, and northern California.
