Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When history proves useless and consensus chimerical, Donald Revell has written, the poet's necessity is invention, and this does a lot to explain our century's preference for revision over mimesis. For Revell, The disruptions of this century have destroyed old illusions of historical continuity: The consolations of history are furtive, / then fugitive, then forgotten. Invoking such contemporary events as the collapse of communism and the end of the Cold War, he seeks to integrate the political with the personal in a search for new paradigms of value and honor

Synopsis:

A celebrated poet struggles with the century's events

Synopsis:

'In Donald Revell's haunting new collection, the momentous political changes of the last few years rumble like aftershocks. Yet through the erasures the old life as we know it, continues to gleam, desperately, winningly.' --John Ashbery
