Klappentext

Fascinated by strangeness that's made in the U.S.A.-its beliefs and organization, its affinity for violence and its elusive relationship with the past-Strange Country lyrically addresses itself to defining American landscapes/dreamscapes, and to their unaccountable beauty. "In Strange Country Jon Thompson addresses the voices, amongst others, of 'the traffic of fear', and bids their speakers join the living. It is also an invitation to the reader to enter a specifically American poetry of the here-and-now. The accomplishment of Strange Country begins with the exact measure of its line and its discovered idiom in the face of what may well be termed the present contradictions of a strange country. What sustains that accomplishment is a poet's attention to a 'wide-open polyphony' equal to the multiple realities of its subject." - Kelvin Corcoran
