The Red Gaze

Book - 2005
Rate this:
The Red Gaze is one long poem divided into smaller poems on imagination and time, beginning with Nostalgia and ending with Supposition. Within the quietude of these poems, a gentle music unfurls; precise and generous. The idea of imagination propels The Red Gaze; references and allusions to art, literature, and history create what has become a signature of Barbara Guest's work - the poem as the event itself. There is something very immediate, alive, and mysterious about these poems. Reading, we inhabit the art - for a brief time suspended in its vision. Over the past decade, Guest has increasingly come to be seen as a major force in innovative poetics. These new poems are delicate, rarified, and unshakable.
