Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn poems about animals, artifacts, and monsters, this book displays a fascination for all bodies while exploring their pain, common fate, alienation, and abilities. It celebrates physical sensation, imbuing it with lyric shape, however broken, however imprisoned the shape may be.

Pressestimmen"Laurie Clements Lambeth understands that the crisis facing the speaker in this indelible book - the dawning struggles of MS, which troubles the nerves and veils and burns the vision - is an intensification of what it is to be any body, the edge-ofcrisis on which we all dwell. But her title also suggests the way photographers enhance images in the darkroom, making them more defined and beautiful. With courage and formal acuity, humor and tenderness, Lambeth 'veils and burns' a moving debut, a suite of poems that are forthright, adult, and entirely humane." Mark Doty, author of School of the Arts and My Alexandria
