Inhaltsangabe: Poetry. "LOVELIEST GROTESQUE is a darkly fascinating book. It's a sweet, shape-shifting creature and a fun postmodern romp. Page after page fills with energetic surprises, keeping the reader intrigued?formal quatrains juxtaposed against prose vignettes... short-line riffs against skinny sonnets against a ballad that spreads across the page against a pantoum with the word "orient" in it. Finally, the slippery slope of too much fun might stop for a nano moment to contemplate an important existential question: "Why were there manatees at all?" Obviously, the answer is this: after 9/11, in the new millennium, all formal discourses must explode, splinter and fragment and coalesce again into a stunning, new voice."?Marilyn Chin
The poems of Sandra Lim, collected together for the first time, demonstrate what happens when a poet with a startlingly conceptual (and at times dark) imagination has a reverence for traditional forms and marries the two together. The poems of this collection have frameworks that vary between formal and more experimental?sonnet, ballad, prose poem, pantoum, and free verse?and she pushes the formal forms to new limits with such revisions as replacing words with the generic ?verb? and ?noun? in the lines, as well as employing unpredictable imagery throughout the book that will appeal to the modern poetry fan.
