Tokyo Butter

A Search for Forms of Deirdre : Poems

Book - 2006
Rate this:
From the acclaimed, award-winning poet, this new collection is a gripping search for life and truth.

From Thylias Moss, one of America's most innovative poets, comes Tokyo Butter , perhaps her most innovative book to date. Inventing new poetics as she goes, Moss applies her exhilarating capacity for language to a synthesis of the personal, the historical, and the cultural. She searches searches for vestiges of Deirdre, a beloved cousin who has left the living; for hints of Cindy Song, a college student missing since 2001; and for manifestations of her true self in the archaic wings of science.

Moss' imagination is, as always, ravenous, interrogative--but in Tokyo Butter there is an urgency amidst the jagged, beautiful verse that has become her trademark.
