Description
This is Frank Bidart's first book of lyrics, and the first book by the Bollingen Prize winner that is not dominated by long poems. Narrative elaboration here becomes speed and song. Less embattled than earlier work, less actively violent, these new poems have, by conceding time's finalities and triumphs, acquired a dark radiance that is new in Bidart's long career. The book opens with Marilyn Monroe, followed by the glamour of the 8th-century Chinese imperial court (seen through the eyes of one of China's greatest poets, Tu Fu). At the center of the book is an ambitious meditation on the Russian ballerina Ulanova, Giselle, and the nature of tragedy. All this gives new dimension and poignance to Bidart's recurring preoccupation with the human need to leave behind some record or emblem, a made thing that stands, in the face of death, for the possibilities of art.
