In the Mode of Disappearance: Poems

Overview

Like Wallace Stevens and William Blake, his poetry reaches the summit of philosophy without being shorn of song. Weinert draws on a range of classical and postmodern poetic strategies and structures to build a bulwark against the forces of fragmentation and disappearance. His intimate and expansive ...

Overview

Jonathan Weinert's award-winning collection IN THE MODE OF DISAPPEARANCE transcends contemporary categories of traditional and experimental, existing in a mode in which the quality of thought itself is paramount. Like Wallace Stevens and William Blake, his poetry reaches the summit of philosophy without being shorn of song. Weinert draws on a range of classical and postmodern poetic strategies and structures to build a bulwark against the forces of fragmentation and disappearance. His intimate and expansive poetics forges a continuum of human knowledge in which, as Edith Sitwell wrote, "the fire of the heart and the fire of the mind" are one.

What People Are Saying

Brenda Hillman
“Jonathan Weinert’s award-winning collection, In the Mode of Disappearance, transcends contemporary categories of traditional and experimental, existing in a mode in which the quality of thought itself is paramount. Like Wallace Stevens and William Blake before him, his is a poetry that reaches the summit of philosophy without being shorn of song. Throughout the collection, Weinert draws upon a range of classical and postmodern strategies, dexterously integrating them with a series of non-poetic modes and constructs (including the four cardinal directions, the nine non-zero digits and the major arcana of the Tarot) in a humane effort to build a bulwark against the forces of fragmentation and disappearance. In so doing, Weinert’s poems forge a continuum of human knowledge in which, as Edith Sitwell once wrote, “the fire of the heart and the fire of the mind” are one.”
