Abstract:

"<Strong>ONE OF NPR'S MOST ANTICIPATED POETRY BOOKS OF 2017</strong> <strong>A striking, full-length debut collection from Virgin Islands-born poet Nicole Sealey</strong>The existential magnitude, deep intellect, and playful subversion of St. Thomas-born, Florida-raised poet Nicole Sealey's work is restless in its empathic, succinct examination and lucid awareness of what it means to be human.The ranging scope of inquiry undertaken inOrdinary Beast--at times philosophical, emotional, and experiential--is evident in each thrilling twist of image by the poet. In brilliant, often ironic lines that move from meditation to matter of fact in a single beat, Sealey's voice is always awake to the natural world, to the pain and punishment of existence, to the origins and demises of humanity. Exploring notions of race, sexuality, gender, myth, history, and embodiment with profound understanding, Sealey's is a poetry that refuses to turn a blind eye or deny. It is a poetry of daunting knowledge"--

"A striking debut full-length collection from Virgin Islands-born poet Nicole Sealey"--
