Jay Wright in Chicago Review

In new titles on October 3, 2013 at 9:52 pm


Neil Arditi offers an excellent review of Jay Wright’s Disorientations: Groundings in the latest issue of Chicago Review: “Readers of Jay Wright’s poetry know him as a relentlessly allusive and idiosyncratic mythmaker who is always playing more games than one. Wright’s study of West African cosmology and ritual practice fully emerged in his second book, Soothsayers and Omens (1976). But from the start his poetry laid claim to multiple identities and traditions, and has continued to do so with a sort of exponential simultaneity. One never knows where a new volume is likely to take him, or us.” Read the full review here.
