Bivouac

Overview

Poetry. "'The noose is sung and to the point / that it pretties and offers succor,' is the dire paradox that opens Laura Solomon's remarkable first collection, BIVOUAC. At once sensuous and stringent, necessitous and playful, these poems are willing to test the limits of the lyric in the service of a higher calling: the echo-location of the indicted self within a "trampoline topography" where consumption is the order of the day. Solomon sets a watch in these foreclosed landscapes in order to de-map and reclaim ...

Overview

Poetry. "'The noose is sung and to the point / that it pretties and offers succor,' is the dire paradox that opens Laura Solomon's remarkable first collection, BIVOUAC. At once sensuous and stringent, necessitous and playful, these poems are willing to test the limits of the lyric in the service of a higher calling: the echo-location of the indicted self within a "trampoline topography" where consumption is the order of the day. Solomon sets a watch in these foreclosed landscapes in order to de-map and reclaim them, to allow for the possibility of beauty, if not salvation, and she does so in a language that is as deft as it is compelling—Cort Day. Laura Solomon, 25, has published poems and criticism in magazines including Both, LIT, Seneca Review, nowCulture, Phoebe, Pool and Rain Taxi. She graduated from the University of Georgia in Athens, and currently lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.
