Reviews - What do customers think about Abrupt Rural?

wonderful book  Aug 20, 2005
I have read each of Lee's books and this one is my favorite, though I love each of them for different reasons. He takes some new risks here, and the results are really powerful. These poems are like an electric jolt to the senses. He's aware of the failings of the world but still finds enough to praise. His is a very unique voice and one to watch.
Like a candle burning inside an empty church...  Apr 4, 2004
I don't know how a book so frighteningly ominous is also so tender.... it doesn't seem possible, and yet, there it is. There's a terrifying recognition on the part of this speaker of just how alone we are in the world, and yet, at the same time, how there is a kind of blessed state from simply having one's eyes open to the horror of still daring to care. To care, in a clear-eyed way, in a time after violence is risky, and strictly unfashionable amongst the ironists that make up the contemporary landscape of American Poetry. In some ways Lee is a throwback, in others a visionary, or maybe he just occupies an utterly unique and important little plot of aesthetic landscape. The tenderist tissue is always the tissue surrounding a wound, and he's a master at touching it gently, with lines like "Dignified, like a man with a grand piano he has to give up". If you read this book, it will matter to you, and further, it will remind you what it *means* for art to matter, which in this day and age, is the rarest accomplishment of all.
