Item description for The Flammable Bird by Elena Karina Byrne...

Elena Karina Byrne's poetry is found in earnest and in exaltation, in her love for language and its lushness. Each poem in her debut collection, The Flammable Bird, is an occasion for wonder, pathos and human intensity, and these observations, collectively, offer an opulent and florid document of our modernity. These poems are rich, and revel in the risks they take with metaphor and image. The beauty created is dazzling.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Flammable Bird?

The Lineaments of (Gratified?) Desire  Jul 25, 2003
The density of Elena Karina Byrne's work makes each read rich with possibility. There is a relentless quality to her poems -- "Relentless, I love relentless," she writes in "The Proportion of Broken" -- that keeps the reader riveted. Byrne's poems are catalogs of obsession balanced by a constant examination of language. The dominant currency is desire. This is poetry of the body, and the reader is doused in sensual apprehension and comprehension. These poems make the heart want to beat faster, and it cooperates, with pleasure.
