9780143037378: The Night Sky: Writings on the Poetics of Experience

A scintillating collection of essays on language from one of literature's most supple minds
In The Night Sky, her first work of essays, acclaimed poet Ann Lauterbach writes of the ways in which art and poetry are integral and necessary to human conversation. At the center of the book is a series of seven essays, by turns meditative and polemical, that articulate the interstices between Lauterbach's poetics and her experience. She advocates an active encounter with language, at once imaginative and practical, and argues for the importance of art to the well- being of a democratic society. Lauterbach's "nimble and glittering" (Booklist) writings bring us to a new understanding of the relationship between self-knowledge and cultural meaning, as well as demonstrating the ways in which contemporary philosophy and theory might be integrated with practical knowledge.

"Ann Lauterbach's poetry is quantum packed inside its own reality.... The mystery and longing in her work, the win and heart are the things we feel on our skin."

Showcases the subtle and philosophical work of a rarified yet captivating poet.
