9780142000182: Viper Rum

In her third collection of poetry, Viper Rum, Mary Karr delves into autobiographical subject matter; various beloveds are birthed and buried in these touching lyrics, some of which, as the title suggests, deal with drink:
I cast back to those last years
I drank, alone nights at the kitchen sink,
bathrobed, my head hatching snakes,
while my baby slept in his upstairs cage
and my marriage choked to death
Precise and surprising, Karr's poems -take on the bedevilments of fate and grief with a diabolical edge of their own- (Poetry).
Also included is Karr's controversial and prize-winning essay -Against Decoration, - in which she took aim against the verbal ornaments that too often pass for poetry these days-the -new formalism- that elevates form to an end itself.
