"[Lux is] sui generis, his own kind of poet, unlike any of the fashions of his time." - Stanley KunitzThomas Lux is humorous, edgy, and ever surprising in The Cradle Place, his tenth collection of verse.These fifty-two poems question language and intention and the sometimes untidy connections between the human and natural worlds.Lux has long been an outspoken advocate for the relevance of poetry in American culture, and his voice is urgent and unrelentingly evocative.As Sven Birkerts has noted, 'Lux may be one of the poets on whom the future of the genre depends.''A book full of arresting images ...The natural world, as it appears here, is at first lovely ...but turns out dangerously vanquished ...Not since Plath has hysteria looked this kissable." - San Francisco Chronicle'Lux has a gift for the swiftly turned expression ...Such immediacy and quirkiness will hold a reader." - Poetry"Readers will be mesmerized." - Poetry Book of the Year, Library JournalTHOMAS LUX holds the Bourne Chair in Poetry and is director of the McEver Visiting Writers Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology.He has been awarded three NEA grants and the Kingsley Tufts Award, and is a former Guggenheim Fellow.He lives in Atlanta.… (mehr)

I would say this is typical Tom Lux, but perhaps a little more diluted than The Drowned River. There are 50 or so poems, each a page or less--and thankfully they fit on a single page unlike some of his books where they leave 5-10 lines on the top of the second page, making a bit of a hard transition. This one seemed more abstract, and only 70% of them or so (a guess) are about weird historical or scientific facts and weaving them into a current or historical live and making them relevant or intriguing. It did seem the end of the poems sort of went off into another space, so I would guess a more savvy mind might have some interest in the inter-poem transitions. ( )
