Reviews - What do customers think about Theories of Falling (New Issues Poetry & Prose) (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

New Poet to Watch  May 17, 2008
Ms Beasley writes with an elegance that goes straight to the heart with occasional side trip to the funny bone. Her unflinching honesty touches something deep and familiar in all of us. Ms Beasley has the potential to be one of the most important literary voices of this century.
JUMP  May 5, 2008
This is the best first book of poetry since James Merrill's "The Black Swan." Like Merrill, or John Ashbery, Sandra Beasley uses personal experience as a jumping off point. Only for her, the "jumping off" is literal, as off the face of a cliff, or Niagara Falls, as in the volume's spectacular centerpiece, the poem "Theories of Falling." Beasley's themes are connectedness (often short-circuited) with other people (family, friends, obtuse others), one's inner world and how it relates to one's self image, and the occasional raw terror of mere physicality (including the physicality of one's own body). The words are strong, sometimes angry, often mordantly playful. Beasley is a poet of risks, exhilarating sonic beauty - but not of easy solutions. It's all about what stance to take when you're in the moving elevator and the cable snaps. What to do with your knees. What to do with your mind. It is not a moment when hesitation is appropriate. And neither is this. So: Click in the upper right hand corner of your screen, and buy this book.
