In his second book, Straus--an oncologist as well as a poet--addresses the hopes and the tragedies of his profession. The work is both a commentary on his experience in the medical field and a collection of rich, vivid monologues written from the patient's point of view. These poems have been composed with a rare sensitivity, not only toward those who are suffering, but toward those particulars that distinguish each life--some poignant, some sweetly comical. --TriQuarterly Books
Not God : a play in verse by Marc J Straus( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
"The tread of the nurses leaving the room next door tells the woman her neighbor has died. The language of the hospital is one she has unwillingly, painstakingly learned: the rhythm of machines, the counting of pills, the measuring of words, the shadowy news of an MRI. And in these harrowing, eloquent poems, she opens this world, this language of illness, to us, revealing how deeply these words and rhythms are also the measure of life. The views of her doctor are also evocatively expressed--his anger, struggles, and hopes--as he speaks of the delicate bond he forms with his ill patients. Composed by a distinguished medical oncologist whose literary work has been performed in venues throughout the country, the poems of Not God document one woman's encounter with cancer, a journey through illness whose end, while inevitable, is also unknown. Alternating with the words of her doctor, these poems form a remarkable dialogue of the flesh becoming word, and of the body inventorying--and finally transcending--its limitations."--Publisher's website
