Item Description...
In the epigraph to Joe Wenderoth's new volume of poetry, a herdsman, exhorted by Oedipus to speak the truth, replies "It is if I speak that I will be destroyed."

Wenderoth's poetry is sparse, nihilistic -- and sometimes witty. Publishers Weekly wrote that, "Like Stevens, Wenderoth has a passion for philosophical ideas; at the same time he follows Williams' dictum: no ideas but in things. The result is poetry that is intellectually charged but whose final fidelity is to the senses." His new book has the dignity of a sincere and ferocious despair. In the narratives of these poems, "owing is all that really happens," and lives are shaped by the refusal to "sink dumbly into tolerance of a spectacle."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Even good for the simple person  Aug 27, 2001
I may be biased about his work, but Joe is accesible even to the lay person. It certainly is worth the effort to hear him speak in person, and I suggest anyone who is anywhere near Baltimore, MD or Marshall, MN make the attempt. If you find this work still to be too arcane a read, check out his Letters to Wendy's.
Beautiful/Casual/Violent  Jul 18, 2000
This book is one of the few books of poetry I've seen-- in the last few decades-- that did not make me dislike the author for writing it. I suggest anyone who likes serious writing look into this-- it is not overly academic, and not sentimental. I will have to look into his other book.
