Poetry. "Words can nourish and give pleasure, can be feasts replete with edgy and delightful textures and flavors. The dual sensualities named in Lorange's title are everywhere present in her poetics. The 'you' and 'I' incarnate only by means of speech enact their conjoined philogies—lusty, omnivorous, humorously irreverent, but grave with longing as well. All this from a knowledgeable and daring mind for your reading (newly cognate with eating) pleasure"—Joan Retallack.
