Klappentext

This career-spanning volume portrays in stunning fashion Lisa Russ Spaar's exquisite obsessions: spiritual hunger, lingual pleasures, bodily decay. The "ringleader of a stunning lexicon" (Shenandoah), Spaar's poems are both colloquial and sumptuous, hyper-attuned to contemporary idiom while rooted in language's primordial, earthy roots. Whether writing of the erotic or the divine, of anorexia or insomnia, of fairy tale or literary history, Spaar's writing is unmistakably her own, a trove of music and magic like nothing else in contemporary poetry. In Madrigalia, her oeuvre is on full display; it is a showcase of her indispensable poetic gifts, a tribute to a writer both acetic and ecstatic.
