Poetry. Edited by poets Marilyn Zuckerman, Christopher Butters, and Robert Edwards, Continuous Performance: The Selected Poems of Maggie Jaffe presents a substantial collection of this poet's most important work. As Robert Edwards intimates in his introduction to this collection, "Once Maggie found her voice, she created a kind of poetry that was relentlessly stripped to the essentials, everything superfluous burned away in the underlying fury that inhabits these poems."
Maggie Jaffe is the author of seven books of poetry, most recently CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE: THE SELECTED POEMS OF MAGGIE JAFFE (Red Dragonfly Press, 2014), and FLIC(K)S: POETIC INTERROGATIONS OF AMERICAN CINEMA (Red Dragonfly Press, 2010). Her books 7TH CIRCLE (Cedar Hill Books, 2003) and THE PRISONS (Cedar Hill Books, 2001) won the San Diego Book Award for Poetry. She teaches at San Diego State University in the English and Comparative Literature Department. She is also the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Grant, and a California Arts Council Grant. Author City: SAN DIEGO, CA USA
