Incredible book of poetry Feb 16, 2007
Check out this line: "Deer in the dark / move along the wood line / like the ghosts of debutantes / who've died violently and don't remember." If you can find a better similie than that in American poetry, let me know. That's just one highpoint. Foy's twenty-one "Rue des Martyrs" poems, which take up a third of this collection, chronicle a young American artist trying to make his way in Paris, living in a garret along with the ghosts of all the poets who've tried and failed in that city before him. "The question," writes Foy, "isn't whether I see ghosts / but whether they see me." I've read these poems over and over and find something new every time.
