The Poet, the Lion, Talking Pictures, El Farolito, a Wedding in St. Roch, the Big Box Store, the Warp in the Mirror, Spring, Midnights, Fire & All
C.D. Wright

Part study, part elliptical love song to poetics, MacArthur Fellow C.D. Wright’s latest collection of prosimetrical essays argues that poetry is less a genre than a way of being and seeing. She rightfully insists that the answer to the many questions of poetry is poetry. Here, as in Cooling Time, a companion volume, Wright explores the province of poetic language in her own tricked out literary ATV. 

"Wright shrinks back from nothing."—The Village Voice

"Wright belongs to a school of exactly one."—The New York Times Book Review

"Wright has found a way to wed fragments of an iconic America to a luminously strange idiom, eerie as a tin whistle."—The New Yorker

"C.D. Wright is one of America's oddest, best, and most appealing poets."—Publishers Weekly

For The Poet, the Lion, Talking Pictures, El Farolito, a Wedding in St. Roch, the Big Box Store, the Warp in the Mirror, Spring, Midnights, Fire & All, C.D. Wright

"Wright’s 15th book and second collection of prose poetry/lyric essays (after 2005’s Cooling Time) further reveals her particular Southern wit, engagement with art, and commitment to social justice. Four major recurring themes unite the collection: Wright’s various journeys at home and abroad, her lifelong engagement with her contemporaries (including Brenda Hillman and Forrest Gander), her constant search for and redefining of poetry itself, and her love for Robert Creeley and William Carlos Williams." —Publishers Weekly
