With their stark titles (âCancer,â âFeces,â âJihadâ), McClatchyâs poems work dazzling variations on this bookâs theme: how we live with the fact that we will die. Crowned by the twenty-part sequence âMotets,â which deals out an exquisite hand of emotional crises, this collection brings us a sumptuous weave of impassioned thought and clear-sighted feeling. Holding up a powerful poetic mirror, McClatchy shows us our very selves in a chilling series of images: the melodrama of the body being played out, as it must be, in the theater of the spirit.
