Incontinence (Phoenix Poets)
By: Susan Hahn (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Charged with sensuality, ferocity, and despair, this sequence of poems follows the progress of a central character's passionate romance. Hahn's fevered book of human emotions becomes a powerful rumination on love, aging, and mutability in general. "Stitching together tropes about writing and technique, as well as hunting and the loss of sexual innocence, [Hahn] marks and exploits the body with surgical precision in order to explore the peripheries of the personal lyric. She wants to take poetry to the most tangible and sensual extremes. It's often uncomfortable, and yet as often results in a poetry of generous, piercing honesty, as if (to rewrite Bradford) it's by the "body" we are 'plainly told.'" David Baker, "Poetry" ""Incontinence" has an enormous, almost epic sweep." "Chicago Sun-Times""
