AUTHOR

Bernstein, Charles

SUMMARY

Heir to the democratic and poetic sensibilities of Walt Whitman and Allen Ginsberg, Charles Bernstein has always crafted verse that responds to its historical moment, but no previous collection of his poems so specifically addresses the events of its time asGirly Man,whichfeatures works written on the evening of September 11, 2001, and in response to the war in Iraq. Here, Bernstein speaks out, combining self-deprecating humor with incisive philosophical and political thinking. Composed of works of very different forms and moodsetchings from moments of acute crisis, comic excursions, formal excavations, confrontations with the cultural illogics of contemporary political consciousnessthe poems work as an ensemble, each part contributing something necessary to an unrealizable and unrepresentable whole. A passionate defense of contingency, resistance, and multiplicity,Girly Manis a provocative and aesthetically challenging collection of radical verse from one of America's most controversial poets. "A major achievement. . . . Anyone interested in contemporary poetry should seek out the collection, if only to read one of our most provocative poet-critics writing his most engaging poems to date."Thomas Devaney,PhiladelphiaInquirer "Charles Bernstein writes both prose and poetry about poetry, sometimes brilliantly, in ways calculated to upset the middlebrow and thwart the bland. The more you like the poetic equivalent of a nice tune, easy to hum, the more Bernstein means to disrupt your complacency."Robert Pinsky,Washington PostBernstein, Charles is the author of 'Girly Man', published 2008 under ISBN 9780226044293 and ISBN 0226044297.
