Item description for Awe by Dorothea Lasky...

If the book of Revelations had been scribbled in the diary of a precocious fourteen-year-old girl, the prophecies might look something like Awe. Dorothea Lasky is a daring truth-teller, naming names and boldly pushing the boundaries of confession. The secrets she tells are truths we recognize in ourselves: "Be scared of yourself / The real self / Is very scary."

Dorothea Lasky was born in St. Louis in 1978. She is the author of several chapbooks and has attended Harvard University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Reviews - What do customers think about Awe?

"Summery" and disturbing in the best ways  Dec 9, 2007
AWE reminds me a bit of Gertrude Stein (Lifting Belly, especially), in the way the elemental repetitions teeter at the liminal space between innocence and obsession. It's an ambivalent space, catching the tone of perception, twisted through a precocious lens. It's captivating. Lasky has the most disturbingly innocent voice in contemporary poetry.

Awe  Sep 6, 2007
With equal parts fierce psychological inquiry, sexual sublimity, and doubt-laden reverence, Dorothea Lasky's poems embody the authoritative force of antiquity, rescuing our current preoccupation with theoretical discourse from its fear of the mirror, and identity politics from its imprisonment therein. Openendedly allegorical and unabashedly social, one hears in Awe "the utterances we emit when we are truly listening." That they sound like no one else and yet say something wholly original about love is the joy of this debut collection's simultaneous strength and willingness to surrender.
