Synopses & Reviews
Linked by critics to the Objectivist tradition, particularly to the poet George Oppen, Rae Armantrout began her writing as a poet closely involved with members of the San Francisco "Language" writers. Her work indeed incorporates elements of both a close observation of the world about her and a witty play of linguistic and syntactical elements, but her writing is of its own. As Elaine Equi has written of Armantrout's book, Necromance, "(She) makes you believe that there is still such a thing as originality".
A new collection from Armantrout continues to reveal the wit and intelligence of the increasingly popular author.
