Inhaltsangabe: A selection of poems from the late author's previous poetry collections, including the award-winning Love Alone, is combined with new poems, many focusing on the loss of his lover, who also died of AIDS. QPB Alt.
Rezension: Paul Monette began his writing life as a poet. For ten years he worked exclusively in the genre producing The Carpenter at the Asylum (1975) and No Witnesses (1981). Monette then turned to writing novels and did not return to poetry until almost a decade later, when AIDS cut down his lover, Roger Horwitz. Sporadically during Roger's 20-month illness, Monette began to experiment with a form that would express the careening anxiety and the overwhelming sense of exile that had engulfed the two men. After Robert died in 1986, Monette wrote a stunning series of elegies for his friend, a monumental and wholly original effusion of the fury and madness of grief. Those elegies appeared in Love Alone (1988), garnering awards and changing the face of AIDS in literature. Since then he has written a varied group of poems, some more formal, some in a torrent of language reminiscent of Love Alone. In West of Yesterday, East of Summer: New and Selected Poems 1973-1993, this impressive body of work has been brought together to reveal the extraordinary diversity of his career as a poet, from the sublime to the heroic. Monette has provided notes and reflections to place the work in context, as well as an illuminating preface. -- Midwest Book Review
