A Hunger: Poems by Lucie Brock-Broido

Brock-Broidos talismanic words open into a magical territory of Domestic Mysticism . . . A violently skewed portrait of the female poet and her Muse, a hyped-up version of Stevens and his interior paramour, locked in a soliloquy in which being there together is enough . . . Something in Brock-Broido likes stealth, toxicity, wildness, neon perfect mean lines . . . The poems leap off the page. Helen Vendler,The New Yorker These poems are out of Stevens in the abundance, glitter, and seductiveness of their language, out of Browning in the authority of their inhabiting, and out of Plath in the ferocity and passion of their holding onto feeling, to life, and to us . . . An astonishing first book.Cynthia Macdonald Brock-Broidos brilliant nervosity and taste for the fantastic impel her to explore the obscure corners of the psyche and the fringes of ordinary human experience . . . The poems in A Hunger are original, strange, often unsettling, and mostly beautiful. Stanley Kunitz From the Trade Paperback edition.
