Über diesen Titel:
Always close to the earth and its animals, always beautifully constructed, always masterly in the ways of storytelling, Mary Swander's poems are experiences both moving and profoundly delightful.
Klappentext: "This poem-in-voices, this narrative-eulogy, this American Gothic celebration is that original and rare thing: a sustained work of art wholly at one with what it makes. Neither simply lyrical nor sequential, it is a single, simultaneous gathering of mourners, relatives, characters, those left behind, those who, in both the tragedy and comedy of circumstances, must, against the silence, speak for themselves. Driving the Body Back is powerfully aural, even choral, in ways we expect of an earlier, regional American literature, from Sherwood Anderson to Faulkner to Eudora Welty. There is really nothing to compare it to in our poetry."
"Mary Swander writes a spare yet elegantly modulated verse. Its clarity and its narrative control, which creates surprise and inevitability of disclosure almost at once, give it an authority that is rare in a first book. Her observations are acute, her sense of the poem's development is unerring. She is never mawkish or hysterical, never 'poetic,' yet her poems radiate great feeling." Mark Strand
