2009, ISBN: 1400063337

[SR: 1100605], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781400063338], Random House, Random House, Book, [PU: Random House], 2009-06-09, Random House, In The Mind-Body Problem, Katha Pollitt takes the ordinary events of life–her own and others’–and turns them into brilliant, poignant, and often funny poems that are full of surprises and originality. Pollitt’s imagination is stirred by conflict and juxtaposition, by the contrast (but also the connection) between logic and feeling, between the real and the transcendent, between our outer and inner selves: Jane Austen slides her manuscript under her blotter, bewildered young mothers chat politely on the playground, the simple lines of a Chinese bowl in a thrift store remind the poet of the only apparent simplicities of her childhood. The title poem hilariously and ruefully depicts the friction between passion and repression (“Perhaps / my body would have liked to make some of our dates, / to come home at four in the morning and answer my scowl / with ‘None of your business!’ ”). In a sequence of nine poems, Pollitt turns to the Bible for inspiration, transforming some of the oldest tales of Western civilization into subversive modern parables: What if Adam and Eve couldn’t wait to leave Eden? What if God needs us more than we need him?With these moving, vivid, and utterly distinctive poems, Katha Pollitt reminds us that poetry can be both profound and accessible, and reconfirms her standing in the , 9966, United States, 10159391011, African American, 10159392011, Asian American, 10159394011, Hispanic American, 10159395011, Native American, 10159384011, Regional & Cultural, 10248, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Détails sur le livre
The Mind-Body Problem: Poems

A highly-anticipated poetry event: Katha Pollitt returns with her first book of poems in more than twenty-five years Although widely admired for her trenchant essays about politics, books, and contemporary American life, Katha Pollitt first made her mark with poetry. Her award-winning debut collection, "Antarctic Traveller," earned widespread acclaim and extraordinary critical recognition. Now she returns with an even more probing, insightful collection, one that will reconfirm her reputation as one of America's leading poets. With startling precision, deep feeling, and wit, she evokes the joys and pains of parenthood, the private side of a literary life, and the complexities of love and marriage. In a sequence of poems drawn from the Bible, she transforms some of the oldest tales in Western civilization into thoroughly modern, and highly-original meditations on how we live our lives. Wise, ironic, and filled with imagination and surprise, "The Mind-Body Problem" is a major new collection, one that will appeal to everyone who cares about clear, affecting, and important contemporary poetry.
