9781882295241: Camera Lyrica

Camera Lyrica navigates the intersection between realism and naturalism, locating moment by moment--the only way it can--the artful, necessary, and always mysterious transformation that occurs between the perceiver and perceived. Amy Newman's subjects range from Audubon's drive for precision, Michelangelo's unfinished Pietá, Darwin and forty-year old Barbie, to a meditation on the diversity of Type itself. With grace and dexterity, her intelligent eye dips into Catholic Mysteries, and the quiet but momentous domesticity of a backyard quince tree. Hers is a language both lush and spare, as she filters it and the world through a lucid imagination, transforming both into something beautiful, challenging, and wholly new.

About the Author:

Amy Newman is currently an Assistant Professor at Northern Illinois University. She holds a Ph.D. in English Literature and Language. Newmans first book, Order, or Disorder, was awarded the Cleveland State University Poetry Center Prize in 1995. She has received Fellowships in Poetry from the Ohio and Illinois Arts Councils. Her poems appear in such journals as The Ohio Review, Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, The Gettysburg Review, Haydens Ferry Review, Willow Springs, Indiana Review, The Carolina Quarterly, The Connecticut Poetry Review, and elsewhere.

Review:

Camera Lyrica confirms Amy Newmans status as one of the most important and exciting poets to have emerged during the last decade. Haunting, prophetic, wise, these poems offer enormous satisfactions: an exquisite, Stevensian music, an anthology of uncanny structures (especially in A Note on the Type & the Interior sequence), and an uncompromising intelligence. Not historys likeness but the very thing, the poet writes. Reading this book, one agrees emphatically: it is the very rare, real thing. -- Tom Andrews

Newman's genius is of a particular and urgent understanding: i.e. that we are summoned, by Nature and by Language, not merely to continue but to begin worlds. Thus, beautifully, she avows the extraordinariness of everything seen, avowing equally the tender newborn flesh of everything said. The Eden of her alphabet is new, is open. -- Donald Revell
