Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her introduction Adrienne Rich describes Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue as "a fully conceived book, speaking as a whole from the first lines to the last. . . . Mr. Pavlic has listened closely to our most profound American art, the blues and jazz, and that music has not only helped him achieve poetic form but allowed him to explore a mesh of experience extraneous to literary theories. . . . This is intimate and soulful work, breathing, brushing, and tonguing its instrument".<P>In response to Charlie Parker's theory of art, "If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn", Ed Pavlic breathes exuberant life into his poetry through rigorous attention to overlapping facets of language — visual, tonal, rhythmic.

Synopsis:

APR First Book Prize winner. Energetic language and mature presence mark this beautiful, disturbing debut.
