Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Human identity testing itself: are the speakers of these poems mother, teacher, creative artist--or are they merely bones to be sorted and juggled? The ramifications of identity ("we'd know... the translation / into mother to be exaltation. Murder, also") leap up sharply in the book's central poem, "Snuff Ballet," in which one speaker, a dancer, is tested by inquisitors who may be a board from whom she seeks a grant. But perhaps these voices, which quickly become intimate and judgmental ("When was the last time you had sex?"), are merely criticism internalized, part of the "one-woman show."

About the Author

Kirsten Kaschock is currently a doctoral fellow in dance at Temple University. Her first book of poetry, UNFATHOMS, was published by Slope Editions.
