  1. C. Varn C. Varn says:

    Wolff's poetry here is eliptical and often terse seeming plain language used to evoke the strange or make the everyday weird Her aphoristic poems linger in the mind long after being read although sometimes this eleptical turn in the longer poems can seem alienating but do reward close readings and running with assiocations Wolff's language play and rhythm is subtle but also slightly discordant and can strke some readeres as stilted

    I thought this book was uneven I liked some poems a lot than others and certain sections than others I thought Wolff's poetry was best when it was shorter and I thought the poems that were many poems together under the same title weren't as good as the ones alone on a single subject The longer poems seemed vague and I had a harder time followingThe poems take some work to understand but her best poems are definitely worth the extra readingMost of the poems seemed unconnected to each other and I couldn't tell why they were grouped into sections I don't mind when a book is not cohesive so it didn't bother me but I thought I would mention it I also didn't mind that her line and stanza breaks seemed sort of random and were not regular Wolff's titles were really good My favorite poems in the bookAfter BalthusRoman PolanskiAutobiographia CopulariaLife of Sorts

    ImpressionsI don't want to like these poems because I'm supposed to like them and I so badly want her to like my poems and put me in Fence one of these days but damn if I'm not liking this book Feels familiar but satisfying Well now I'm feeling the limitations of the book The music is a bit stilted I like some of the sounds but the rhythm is halting Reminds me of an album where all the songs are in the same key

  4. Mary Louise Mary Louise says:

    These poems are not easily digested or interpretted but her wordplay and aletness to irony kept me engaged even if I had to put it down a couple of times
