Poetry. As in the title phrase?borrowed from a 17th century poem by Robert Herrick?in which "several" is used to individuate, questions of singularity and the plural, of subjectivity and the collective, pervade this dream-quick poetry. In A SEVERAL WORLD there are glimpses of an "us down here"?in the understory, in the open clearing?and, by various projections, there is frequent attainment of an aerial vantage, a post otherwise abdicated. Landscape here is spatial theater, and a choreography recruits all standalone selves: solidarity beginning in an erotics of attunement, catching likenesses.
"This clever, busy, anxious, flirtatious poet, with his 'predilections for predicaments,' can connect anything to anything else."?Stephen Burt,The New York Times Book Review
A new collection of poetry considers themes of individuality and singularity as they relate to life in the twenty-first century.
