Temper

Author: Beth Bachmann
Publisher: Pittsburgh, Pa. : University of Pittsburgh Press, [2009] ©2009
Series: Pitt poetry series.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Poetry : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Temper is at once violent and controlled, unflinching and unforgiving in temperament. The poems are mercilessly recursive, placing pressure on the lyric as a mode of both the elegiac and the ecstatic. The result is an enforced silence, urgent with grief.
