Item Description...
"When history proves useless and consensus chimerical," Donald Revell has written, "the poet's necessity is invention, and this does a lot to explain our century's preference for revision over mimesis." For Revell, The disruptions of this century have destroyed old illusions of historical continuity: "The consolations of history are furtive,/ then fugitive, then forgotten." Invoking such contemporary events as the collapse of communism and the end of the Cold War, he seeks to integrate the political with the personal in a search for new paradigms of value and honor.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An aesthetic raised to a sort of fence sitting  Apr 26, 2000
Donald Revell captures life's struggles and hopes. The front cover is a good indication of where the book is going to take you. It is a painting by Rosenburg, in which he took a previous painting and altered it to fit into a new dimension. This is similar to Revell's ability to cause the reader of his beautifully short book to change their view on poetry. I have the privilege of knowing Donald personally, and I can only say that this book is an awakening into a beautiful man.
