Poetry. The poems in TRUE are Rae Armantrout's contribution to the Atelos project, a series begun in 1995 and devoted to publishing, under the sign of poetry, writing which challenges the conventional definitions of poetry, since such definitions have tended to isolate it from intellectual life, arrest its development, and curtail its impact. The text here appears in prose paragraphs and details much of the poet's own history. A founding L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poet, her poems have appeared in journals such as The Iowa Review, in The Los Angeles Times Book Review, and in books, including PRECEDENCE and MADE TO SEEM. She teaches writing at the University of California, San Diego.
