Inhaltsangabe: Poetry. A new book of poetry by the always-inventive Susan Smith Nash, author of CHANNEL-SURFING THE APOCALYPSE and DOOMSDAY BELLY. "If one of the jobs of poetry at the present time is to explore the nature of language and its interaction with other forms of communication and perception, Susan Smith Nash has achieved a great deal. Not only has she given herself the freedom to explore the world in a way that few contemporary poets have allowed themselves to do, she has moved out of the fly-over state of mind that sees American English and its literary genres as the only ones available" -- Karl Young, from the afterword.
Über den Autor: Susan Smith Nash began her advanced education as a geologist, doing extensive field work in Bolivia. This gave her an impression of the land in what may seem a comically literal sense -- and it also gave her the opportunity to polish her abilities with Spanish dialects and bring her into contact with the Native American peoples of the region. Moving her area of study to comparative literature and her exploration of Latin America to Paraguay, she assembled the first anthology of Paraguayan women poets ever gathered inside or outside Paraguay. An English version of this anthology now appears on the World Wide Web.
Nash currently works as a professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Oklahoma. Well aware of the vacilating fortunes in oil and agriculture, she also works with international programs to aid countries such as Azerbaijan, Russia, and Uzbekistan in finding solutions to imbalances brought about by exploitation of oil and mineral resources. Her early work as a writer dealt with charismatic dictators and doomsday cults. In all her areas of endeavour, she explores the new order of global intercconectedness in which many long-held asumptions have become obsolete.
