Beschreibung:

The hard center of The Law of Falling Bodies bears down on the twin enmities of pain and loss. But the book ranges over a broad field, with poems covering everything from the inundations of summer rain ("e;It's like living in the spit valve of a big trombone"e;) to a lovesick drunk listening to Patsy Cline ("e;My drink's on the rocks, and I am, too."e;) Glaser begins with the quirks and revelations of nature, shifts to those difficult adjustments we make as the body breaks down, modulates to a series of scenes imbued with music, and ends on an elegiac note in memory of his late wife ("e;Grief follows me like a dog behind the butcher's truck"e;). Along the way, the poems touch on a restless scale of tones, as light as the indignant comedy of "e;It Ain't the Heat, It's the Stupidity"e; and as heartbreakingly dark as "e;Autopsy."e; At the core is the constant interplay of an agile mind and rich language--what Ezra Pound called "e;the dance of the intellect among words"e;--always feeling out what it is to be human. The Law of Falling Bodies is part of the University of Arkansas Press Poetry series, edited by Enid Shomer.
