Artificial Heart

Posted on: November 16th, 2016 by pgAdmin

Peter Gizzi’s new book negotiates the intersection of artifice and the turbulent domain of feeling. The book recuperates the concerns of the 11th-century troubadour poets—the hermetic display of love, politics, statehood, and grief— in the present. Formally the collection is a sampling of lyric history from the troubadours to post-industrial punk: it sustains the haunting quality of a song heard from a distance, overlayed with playground noise, lovers’ oaths and cries of loss. The poems both celebrate and challenge the spell of the physical world over the imagination, narrating the gap between embrace and abandonment.

Peter Gizzi’s pizzazz-filled 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.
