Big-eyed Afraid PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Big-eyed Afraid free pdf "Big-Eyed Afraid" is a fast-paced, breathlessly witty and illuminating riff on the multiple effects of race, sex, biology and social pressure on who we are and how we see ourselves. Dawson's dazzling rhymes, her perfect pitch for an array of idioms ranging from the smutty to the sacred, and her extraordinary combination of metrical control and jazz-like syntactical elaboration make her work feel at one and the same time chiseled and improvised, traditional and utterly distinct. Brilliantly alert to multiple influences yet irreducibly tied to this particular poet at this particular moment in our collective history, "Big-Eyed Afraid" is one of the most compelling and entertaining books of poetry I've read in I don't know how long." - Alan Shapiro.
