Poetry. LGBT Studies. Inspired by Ovid's instructional Ars Amatoria, with overtones of Renaissance sonnet cycles, ADVICE FOR LOVERS is a highly wrought volume of poems. Intricately formal but saucy and contemporary in diction, ADVICE FOR LOVERS walks a fine line between the anything goes orthography of the Elizabethans and the shifting etymologies of James Joyce. Sexy, kinky, disquieting, ADVICE FOR LOVERS blazes an erotic trail into the twenty-first century.
