9781571314192: Atlas

Blank verse poems about history, culture, and language. Like a literal road atlas, the poems carry lines and themes from one to the next. Like Atlas holding up the world, they hold patterns of all kinds aloft with an attention that transforms. The poems also are an atlas of the known world, capturing the way events repeat across time and place, as in one poem that links the image of her sister, pausing in her work as housekeeper, with the contours of a maid in a Vermeer painting and a woman just "made over" on that day's episode of Oprah. Vandenberg's poems use family artifacts, memory, and imagination to plot the intersections of love, death, history, art, and desire. In the first section, "Trade Routes," about connections, each poem moves back one generation to investigate the ways events reverberate across time. The second section, "The Red Fields of Lisse (A Love Story)," focuses on a former partner, a hemophiliac with AIDS, and tulips. The third section, "Catalog of Want," contains poems about desire in various guises. The last section, "A Place Ten Years Away," reexamines the themes of the first three sections.

Product Description:

This debut collection of poetry by Katrina Vandenberg draws on different meanings of the title, carrying lines from one poem to the next and capturing the reverberations of events across time and place. One poem links an image of the poet's sister — paused in housekeeping work — to a maid in a Vermeer painting and a woman being "made over" on Oprah. Another compares an ex-lover's HIV to a 19th-century tulip epidemic. Quiet yet forthright, intimate yet generous, Vandenberg's poems map the intersections of history, art, love, death, and desire.

Product Description:

Thomas Lynch, author of The Undertaking, describes Atlas as a mighty work in words the plots the intersections of love, death, history, art, and desire. One section links the tainted blood of a former partner--a hemophiliac with AIDS--to the virus that made tulips so rare and remarkable during the famous Tulipomania of the seventeenth-century.
