Reviews in The Nation

In Uncategorized on March 26, 2010 at 2:40 pm

In the April 12 issue of The Nation, Graham Foust’s most recent book A Mouth in California receives an excellent, in-depth review by Ange Mlinko: “Since so much of Foust’s work is a declaration of what he likes, embraces and wants to incorporate into his corpus–that is, his body–these poems instruct the reader to become what you like so you can like what you are. And they mark Foust as one of the best erotic poets writing now–one who knows how to wring sex appeal from sly titles and rough enjambments.” The full review can be read online here.

In the same issue, John Palattella’s “Shelf Life” offers a thoughtful reflection on Elizabeth Arnold’s Effacement: “Elemental and unsparing, quiet and startling, Arnold’s supple syntax is a source of gravity and vertigo. It is an acute expression of a mind’s awareness of the tragedy of effacement: in burning through it, we gain a keener sense of our predicament.” The article is only available online for subscribers.
