Dog Angel: Poems
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungJesse Lee Kercheval writes with wit, vivid language, and devastating honesty in these autobiographical poems. Tracing the timelines of her life forward and backward, she offers a moving examination of the role of family and the possible/probable/hoped for existence of God -- and how our perceptions of the divine can be transformed from a kindergartner's dyslexically scrawled "doG loves U" to the ever-present but oft-ignored Dog Angel of the title.
PortraitJesse Lee Kercheval, the Sally Mead Hands Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, directs the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing. She is the author of a variety of award-winning books, including a memoir, a short story collection, a novel, a textbook, and the poetry collection World as Dictionary.
Pressestimmen"Kercheval is a poet unafraid of the universal questions of how we came to be and what we do once on this earth and in these bodies. Dog Angel shows us the world's rough and refined beauty and challenges us to learn from it, in language that encompasses both song and joke, and is always finely tuned to both the real world and any and all worlds beyond it." - Allison Joseph; "Juxtaposing American pop culture and European tradition, [Kercheval] takes readers to the Zippo Museum and the Prado, to a college town where 'everyday we slouched / toward this Bethlehem of lunch counters.' Kercheval's imagination torques language; she elegizes human innocence ('golden in a marzipan of calm') and critiques the experiences of adult child, artist, parent." - Robin Becker"
