Dothead: Poems PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dothead: Poems free pdf The acclaimed poet and novelist--a fierce and original voice--now joins the Knopf list with a captivating, no-holds-barred collection of new poems. "Dothead"is an exploration of selfhood both intense and exhilarating. Within the first pages, Amit Majmudar asserts the claims of both the self and the other: the title poem shows us the place of an Indian American teenager in the bland surround of a mostly white peer group, partaking of imagery from the poet's Hindu tradition- the very next poem is a fanciful autobiography, relying for its imagery on the religious tradition of Islam. From poems about the treatment of people who look like Majmudar at the airport ("my dark unshaven brothers / whose names overlap with the crazies and God-fiends") to a long, freewheeling abecedarian poem about Adam and Eve and the discovery of oral sex, "Dothead"is both a profoundly satisfying cultural critique and a thrilling experiment in language. United across a wide range of tones and forms, the poems inhabit and explode multiple perspectives, finding beauty in every one."
