Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
These potent poems explode on the page with an unbridled honesty and a staccato rhythm. Daniell (A Sexual Tour of the Deep South), at times relentlessly vivid, depicts the stigmas, anger and strength of women, particularly in the South. The violence, victimization, ambivalence and recklessness that characterize both sex and war become indistinguishable to Daniell: `` . . . the glory of living among men/ as cruel as hard as you aspire/ to be snapping to saying yes sir!/ dismantling reassembling pulling/ the pin on shooting off the heavy stuff/ hacking through brush wth a real bayonet.'' Toward the end of the book, there are also moments of optimism, even celebration: ``but what else is true/ is: joy. My lover/ at table his body as/juicy as succulent/ as the tulip stalks/ my daughter in a red robe/fresh blood coursing between/ her thighs spreads homemade/ bread with strawberries red/ red jam . . . Darlene the pink-gray cat/ purrs atop the creamy/ afghan its cerise roses.'' Daniell's passion is huge, and for the most part she translates it successfully into poetry, although there are spots where the choppiness of images renders the logic hard to follow. What makes this poet's second collection so appealing is the tenacity with which she bares her insight. Unbounded energy and confidence of expression imparts her message, amid fury and pain, as ultimately life-affirming. (July)
Library Journal
pap. $10.70. poetry Daniell's second collection expands the themes set forth in her previous collection, A Sexual Tour of the Deep South (1976), and her two nonfiction works: Sleeping with Soldiers ( LJ 12/84) and Fatal Flowers ( LJ 4/15/80). For this woman ``the two sexiest places in the world'' are ``high schools & Army posts,'' an opinion that poem after poem explores in vivid detail. Daniell writes of masochistic sex, abortion, murder, drugs, and then states flatly: ``The body of yourself is the cell of a prison/ until you touch another.'' The pity is that no woman dared broach such subjects half a century ago. Flamboyantly honest, Daniell might offend, but even those who protest will find it hard to deny her craftsmanship. For all the pain in these poems, Daniell both survives and transforms. Rochelle Ratner, formerly Poetry Editor ``Soho Weekly News,'' New York
