Item description for We Aren't Who We Are - And This World Isn't Either (New Voices) by Christine Korfhage...

"...Contradiction is built into the title of this book. So too is the question of being. Korfhage's work admits no easy answers. Her poetry is quirky, feminine, as many-eyed as the fly on the wall, as fast-paced and dramatic as any novel. Her language is deliberately colloquial, like the marvelous poets Marie Howe and Sharon Olds. It is elegant and achingly honest...always forging her own way."--Liz Rosenberg

Reviews - What do customers think about We Aren't Who We Are - And This World Isn't Either (New Voices)?

Brutally Lyrical  Jun 14, 2008
How far modern poetry has come! At one time, we were instructed to divorce any knowledge of the poet's life from our reading of the text. 'The text is the only authority on the text.' And that floated the English PhD industry for a good 50 years. Then, just as everyone seemed to be giving up on poetry altogether--everyone, that is, except the poets--this new movement happened. Poetry by, for, and about real people. Poetry as autobiography. Korfhage has shown herself a diligent student of the requirements of this discipline. She has avoided all the obvious pitfalls, especially maudlin whining and self-pity, and mastered the primal linguistic and musical elements of poetry to create what amounts to a 150-page autobiography that is brutally lyrical. Don't expect a lot of rhyme and meter here. Don't expect perpetuation of four millenia of stuff about birds and flowers. Expect a unique life and a unique voice. We poets are, first and foremost, witnesses. And if we tell the future about what it was like living now in the language of the past, what good will we have done? I am happy to know that someone, someday will pick up Korfhage's book and, closing the back cover, say, "So. That's what it was like."
