Product Description

Publisher: 0   Publication Year: 2001   First Edition: No

Book Type: Used   Format: Trade Paperback   Condition: Like New

A great poet s freshest, most provocative book. He dreams at the center of a closed system, like the prison system, or a system of love, where folktale, recipe, and household custom refer back to the maze that they are of.--from -A System: PCP, or Angel Dust- taste and appetite are contraposed in Boss Cupid is the twelfth book of poems by the quintessential San Francisco poet, who is also the quintessential craftsman and quintessentially a love poet, though not of quintessential love. Variations on how we are ruled by our desires, these poems make a startling and eloquent gloss on wanton want, moving freely from the story of King David and Bathsheba to Arthur Rimbaud s diet to the tastes of Jeffrey Dahmer. As warm and intelligent as it is ribald and cunning, this new collection of Thom Gunn's is his richest yet.
