Presents a selection of poems from United States Poet Laureate 2008-2010. In this title, her short precise lines, her meticulous phrasing, and the way she feels her way through ideas so that they never cease to be real and rooted in experience and language, evoke the pausing precisions of Marianne Moore.
In Odd Blocks Kay Ryan, the acclaimed American poet, presents her work to European readers for the first time. The book includes twenty-one new poems, seven of them first published here. Ryan's flamboyant imagination sparks in spare and elegant verse. 'Edges,' she has said, 'are the most powerful parts of the poem. The more edges you have the more power you have.' These poems take by surprise, and increase in resonance.
You can't help consuming Kay Ryan's poems quickly, the way you are supposed to consume freshly made cocktails: while they are still smiling at you. But you immediately double back - what was that? A-- - and their moral and intellectual bite blindsides you. THE NEW YORK TIMES These are fine poems that inspire us with poetry's greatest gifts: the music of language and the force of wisdom. ANNIE DILLARD Kay Ryan works toward an exciting art, much less sparse than it looks. This is natural history seen from an angle of vision that Emerson and Dickinson would have approved. It refreshes me to find poems that require and reward rereading as much as these do. HAROLD BLOOM
