Â Â Â Â Composed of works of very different forms and moodsâetchings from moments of acute crisis, comic excursions, formal excavations, confrontations with the cultural illogics of contemporary political consciousnessâthe poems work as an ensemble, each part contributing something necessary to an unrealizable and unrepresentable whole.Â Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â A passionate defense of contingency, resistance, and multiplicity, Girly Man is a provocative and aesthetically challenging collection of radical verse from one of Americaâs most controversial poets.
Â Â Â Â Â Â âA major achievement. . . . Anyone interested in contemporary poetry should seek out the collection, if only to read one of our most provocative poet-critics writing his most engaging poems to date.ââThomas Devaney, PhiladelphiaInquirer
