Item Description...
Anabranch, the sequel to Andrew Zawacki's critically acclaimed By Reason of Breakings, is a record of philosophical movement into the world, a meditation upon its shadowy routes, and a requiem for what is lost along the way. Composed of three sequences introduced by a "Credo" that professes, "I believe / in the violence of not knowing," this volume of poems explores alienation, disruption, and disjunction at the levels of language, perception, feeling, and the self. In a broken landscape defined by negation and an asymptotic relation to a divinity that might not exist, Zawacki pursues a poetics of intimacy, impelled by what the heart decides, and offers a visionary new way for being in the world. Poems in Anabranch have been awarded both the 2002 Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award and the 2002 Cecil Hemley Memorial Award by the Poetry Society of America.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Third section the strongest by far.  Mar 5, 2007
Andrew Zawacki, Anabranch (Wesleyan, 2004)

I started Anabranch, and within ten pages I was feeling some trepidation. Not because it's a bad book-- it is never that-- but because I wasn't really coming across anything I hadn't read before. And sometimes that's exactly what a person needs, but I've been reading a lot of poetry lately. I wanted something different. Then I got to "Masquerade," the book's final section, twenty-six short prose pieces. Maybe I have been reading too much poetry, because some of these blew my socks off. They're short, concentrated pieces of random image that somehow cohere:

"The drowned from their drawing rooms: lost inside a still-life by someone who will never saw them, not even the daughter who stayed for a while, leaving again before sun-up. Dissolving on iron staircases, pulled by the gravel to reckon: a lieutenant from the wedge brigade, or the widow he exiled not least from herself, seven sisters wrapped in a voile of coral labyrinths and salt..." ("Masquerade", 11)

Hallucinatory, suffused with a methamphetamine pace and a knack for dodging any trope that might point the way to realism. This is not terribly surprising when one reads the brief Notes section at the back of the book; Zawacki pulls from Carne and Tarkovsky (and, while uncredited, I swear I detect a faint odor of Valery). Armed with that, I went back and re-read the first two sections, and liked them a good deal more. I kept myself from jacking the rating up too much in order to preserve bits of my initial impression, but this is a good'un. *** ½
Persuasively documents his standing as a gifted wordsmith  Oct 12, 2004
Also available in a hardcover edition (0819567000, $28.00), Anabranch is a compilation of author, editor, anthologist, and poet Andrew Sawacki and persuasively documents his standing as a gifted wordsmith with a talent for imaginative linguistic expression. Vertigo: If wind that wastes its time among the trees/escapes itself, only to end up quarantined/by a derelict squall from the north,//and if the air turns somersaults, miming/the outtakes of dusk, scandaled by an early frost/and punished for its coldness by the cold--//then, like a bullet that lodges in bone,/becoming a piece of the body,/you will not awake apart from your name.//And I will not be not a part of you.
