Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Poetry. "CONSOLATIONS is a book as intelligent as it is lyrical, as interested in philosophy as in poetry, as tampered with as it is sincere, as classical as experimental, with a paradoxically 'original' sound, especially in its striking attention to the rhetoric of conviction, to bibliographic manners, and to the potential for the sublime."—Rachel Blau DuPlessis

"Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy was written in prison; Jeremiah Bowen's CONSOLATIONS unearths an escape route through a system of erasure. Although in the tradition of Ronald Johnson's RADI OS and Jen Bervin's NETS, CONSOLATIONS goes beyond selective removal; it mixes its residuals so that its origins are practically untraceable. This is an 'emended' edition, a correction (and a fierce alternative) to the certainties of philosophical truths. In such a work, the language of authority must step aside and make room for a world of new rhetorical possibilities."—Jena Osman

"In this text of CONSOLATIONS, 'mutability' and 'frenzy' exchange, on every page, towards a book that is part philosophy, part poetry. Jeremiah Bowen is that rare animal who combines lyric gifts with narrative ones, and I am glad, as his reader, to be part of what his writing is: both an 'interlude' and a 'sting.' I sting myself, reading his book, a book that 'sings.' A book that is 'paralyzed by song.' Reading is writing, pleasure is pain, as Bowen writes this body, a book-body. As it burns."—Bhanu Kapil
