Item Description...
Cynthia Genser's landscapes, like those of D.H. Lawrence, are analogues of human emotions; her men and women exist in their effects-prototypes one minute, passionate and distinctly visible individuals the next. Person and place invite the reader into an adventure that begins and ends everywhere.

The language employed throughout is voluptuous, sensuous, yet precise. The appeal is to all the senses as well as to reason and intelligence: the poems, seamed with a difficult, sweaty beauty, stimulate every pleasure center. But pure language play also leads to hard, intelligent sense.

Of her own work, Cynthia Genser has said, "Although I belong to no special school or group, I align my poetry with the work of others aiming their metaphors at the banality and reductionism of our world-at the terror or planned obsolescence, Vogue Magazine, the threat of nuclear warfare. I cannot agree more with the Marxist Henri Lefebvre that poetry is the enemy and eventual victor in the war against 'terrorism' and the terrorist society we now live in."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lyric poetry that is intelligent, imaginative, and beautiful.  Oct 7, 2006
"Taking On The Local Color" is a compendium of poetry by Cynthia Genser who writes her verse with witty, evocative, and carefully selected language offering readers a memorably lyric poetry that is intelligent, imaginative, and beautiful. 'Heartlands': All the tall women are dancing/with their hair in their teeth,/in the mouths./From the lit circumference rivers break,/and break their bans.//These read like a map:/Sweet Georgia and Niger with her pale scar./Marked off, and off limit/to any man's mark/they conquer me, whispering:/this is no Everest,/remember your manners.//And the night waits, sharp,/behind the door./Soon, or later, its eternal invitation./Not yet. Not now/when I am moving in a deep warmth/beneath a face/pearled and fiery--Oahu,/cooling after birth.
