Play by Liz Waldner( Book )

Liz Waldner?s Play represents her most accessible, most openly romantic, most unabashedly Romantic, collection of poetry. Unlike the dark forebodings and anguish that have defined her work since Etym(bi)ology, A Point Is That Which Has No Part and Dark Would (the missing person), Play reads like a breakthrough into illumination and restfulness. Largely set as Sapphoic dialogues between Eastern and Western philosophy and poetics??Argument withal, within??these poems test the limits of rapprochement, of translation, between cultures. Here, the ?other,? another way of being in the world, teaches the ego to accept its dissolution (demonstrated most effectively in ?The Imagined Snake Is The Sport Of The Rope?), a ?lesson? previously reserved for the natural world. Waldner brings both together through the figures of human and animal females, even acknowledging that the searching pathos of an early book, Homing Device, has culminated in discovery (?The Homing Device Comprehended At Last?): ?when my god leaves me?/ She doesn?t leave you/When I don?t know she?s there, then/ And now?? From her first book Waldner?s ecriture feminine has had a distinctly (Southern) Dickinsonian accent; she still hears with her skin, tastes with her eyes, touches with her ears. Waldner?s comprehension of the myriad mirrors of phenomena without conflating, even when reversing, sensibility and intelligibility is as audacious as it is admirable. ?Tyrone Williams

A Point Is Which Has No Part by Liz Waldner( file )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Liz Waldner's bold new collection takes its title and its inspiration from Definition 1 of Euclid's Elements of Geometry. Its six sections-point, line, circle, square, triangle, and point again-are explorations of various kinds of longing and loss-sex, death, exile, story, love, and time. Drawing from culture high and low-Eno and Aquinas, Lassie and Donne, Silicon Valley and Walden Pond-these poems offer proof of and proof against the "mortal right-lined circle" of memory and identity
