Poetry. In the precise peregrinations of Andy Frazee's first book, what is at stake is nothing less than what it means to write lyric poetry now—thrown into conflict with itself as it has been by the hallmarks of our cultural moment: irony ("irony beyond irony"), hyper-self-awareness, the constant interruptions of calamity far and near. In THE BODY, THE ROOMS, Frazee manages to turn self-consciousness into a virtue—into the lyric material itself. "Do we believe in anything" a poem asks—without a question mark. Even grief comes to us mediated, and so Frazee invents an elegy for the twenty-first century. Formally daring and beautifully written, this book braves its own questioning—and triumphs.
