Periplum and other poems

Posted on: November 16th, 2016 by pgAdmin

Periplum and other poems brings together Peter Gizzi’s celebrated and influential first book, out of print for nearly a decade, with 60 pages of early and uncollected work. The vibrancy and immediacy of Gizzi’s poems constitute 21st-century lyricism at its best, a richly complex music engaged with the crucial questions of and around contemporary culture. His poems achieve a delicate balance of emotional and intellectual richness and the sense of poetry itself as a primary ground of human experience.

Some Values of Landscape and Weather

Posted on: November 16th, 2016 by pgAdmin

Peter Gizzi’s poems move between bewilderment and understanding, anger and astonishment. Some Values of Landscape and Weather revives poetic architectures such as elegy, song, and litany, to build what he calls “a comprehensive music.” Here musical and pictorial values perform against a backdrop of political, social, and ethical values. These intense and exacting poems traverse a landscape of cultural memory that opens into the explosive, vibrant registers of the now. John Ashbery has written that Gizzi’s poems are “simultaneously all over the page and right on target. He is the most exciting new poet to come along in quite a while.”
