Publishers Description
Rae Armantrout has always organized her collections of poetry as though they were works in themselves. Versed brings two of these sequences together, offering readers an expanded view of the arc of her writing. The poems in the first section, Versed, play with vice and versa, the perversity of human consciousness. They flirt with error and delusion, skating on a thin ice that inevitably cracks: "Metaphor forms / a crust / beneath which / the crevasse of each experience." Dark Matter, the second section, alludes to more than the unseen substance thought to make up the majority of mass in the universe. The invisible and unknowable are confronted directly as Armantrout's experience with cancer marks these poems with a new austerity, shot through with her signature wit and stark unsentimental thinking. Together, the poems of Versed part us from our assumptions about reality, revealing the gaps and fissures in our emotional and linguistic constructs, showing us ourselves where we are most exposed.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
versed rocks  Apr 27, 2010
These series of poems are wondrous and a kind of odes to language itself. I love poetry and Rae seems to bend language and spin wondrous poems in her newest work Versed. It requires a little attention, if at first you dont understand try try again thats the beauty of poetry. Versed won the pulitzer prize for best work of poems and deservely so.

I read Versed in a bookstore, and I can't figure out for the life of me why anyone would want to pay money for it.
