Description


In this book-length poem, G.C. Waldrep addresses matters as diverse as Mormonism, cymatics, race, Dolly the cloned sheep, and his own life and faith. Drafted over twelve trance-like days while in residence at Hawthornden Castle, Waldrep responds to such poets as Alice Notley, Lisa Robertson, and Carla Harryman, and tackles the question of whether gender can be a lyric form.

G.C. Waldrep's books include Disclamor (BOA Editions Ltd., 2007) and Your Father on the Train of Ghosts (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2011). He lives in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, where he teaches at Bucknell University, edits West Branch, and serves as editor-at-large for the Kenyon Review.
