Book - 2005
Rate this:
Comprised almost entirely of never-before-collected poems,  Scarlet Tanager  is Bernadette Mayer's first collection of new work in nearly a decade. Called "magnificent" by John Ashbery and "consummate" by Robert Creeley. Mayer mixes together delightful epigrams ("What it means to be a mammal / sexually /it's cute"), long-line free verse, and her astonishing sonnets. There are also curious, extremely witty translations of Mayer poems into joking, free-style French, which are then re-translated back into English, landing quite some ways from the original. There is no one writing today who can touch Bernadette Mayer for sheer pleasure and indelible brilliance.
