Item description for Elegy with a Glass of Whiskey (A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America) by Stephen Dunn Crystal Bacon...

In this robust collection Crystal Bacon explores vision and the nature of myth-making, from cultural archetypes, such as Persephone and Narcissus, to Anne Frank and Chet Baker, to the personal myths that shape individual lives. Additionally, these poems, written from Bacon's perspective and adopted personas, examine the timeless themes of birth and death, love and loss, maleness and femaleness.

As a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation poet, Crystal Bacon led writing seminars for high school teachers in southern New Jersey. Her work has appeared in publications in the US and Canada as well as the anthology, Urban Nature: Poems about Wildlife in the City. A professor at Gloucester County College, she divides her time between New Jersey and Nova Scotia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Elegy with a Glass of Whiskey (A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America)?

Occasionally clever, rarely interesting.  Dec 4, 2004
Being an admirer of Stephen Dunn's simple, potent work, I am surprised to see his name associated with this collection. Though the author manages to occasionally produce some interesting wordcraft, her work is mired in the pretentions that plague academic poetry, relying too heavily on references to classical works and mythology instead of more human elements. In addition, many of her works are too abstract, in my opinion, to really involve the reader. In summation, this collection is not one I'd consider a necessary or worthwhile addition to one's bookshelf.
Seeks to invoke feelings with word clad imagery  Oct 30, 2004
In her poetry, Crystal Bacon seeks to invoke feelings with word clad imagery that evokes a compelling authority by way of mind inspired, mythos influenced, thoughtfully emotional reader response. Hinged: In the sea-dark bed my hands find your flesh/fluid, oceanic--manatee?--and/the scar from sternum to pelvis, the place/where you are joined to you: where the selkie/might hide the other skin that's tucked inside./Or if you are the root of me, the seed's/pod meets itself there. But you're no hydra,/no mermaid, your liquid spine hooked side to/side to ribs rearranged since that impact/of steel on steel that spun you out, that dropped/you here where you have healed. And now we wake/in this simplicity of touch to find/our love is hinged to your survival.
