Item description for Journey to the Lost City by Jonathan Aaron...

Taking its title from the cult horror movie classic, Jonathan Aaron's third book, Journey to the Lost City, is a work of sharp wit, irony, and disarming tenderness. Cool, metaphysically quizzical, almost Eastern-European in sensibility, Aaron's poems are a far cry from the dull, personal anecdotal quality that infects so much contemporary poetry. Savvy, intelligent, personal yet reserved, they take us on imaginative forays into a world where time swirls the past into the present, juxtaposing historical persons and places with the here and now. This allows the poet to speak with a weird authority that's both wholly American and timeless, intimate yet without the intrusion of a confiding individual self.

Aaron is a poet whose work is well known and admired by poets but has not yet reached the larger audience it deserves, though his poems have appeared numerous times in Best American Poetry and his second book, Second Sight, was a National Poetry Series winner. He is a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, and the London Review of Books, as well as the Boston Globe, and has taught for many years at Emerson College. Journey to the Lost City is his first book since 1992. It has been eagerly awaited by his fans, and will introduce new readers to a poet of great range and stature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Journey to the Lost City?

An impressive compendium of memorable poetry drawn from the work of Jonathan Aaron  Jun 12, 2006
Journey To The Lost City is an impressive compendium of memorable poetry drawn from the work of Jonathan Aaron. Characterized by a glorious sense of the mind and self, Journey To The Lost City documents the vividly acute mind and voice of Aaron. This Little System: of branch twigs a few dead leaves/still cling to, along with three or four/shreds of sun-stiffened paper, a bit of string/occasionally a weather-faded ribbon, feels//prickly, oddly solid, yet ready to float/from your hand. Lidded--roofed--it might be/a box or a tiny house meant for nothing/bigger than a bird or a mouse. Don't ask me//why at night it emits a fitful glow,/abrupt flashes, periodic spokes of light./What do I know? Someone insides' up late//reading or snooping with a flashlight. Or signaling/that long, low, darkened ship lying in/close to shore, doubtless up to no good.
