Resistance Fantasies

Overview

Thiel uncovers layers of meaning in the evocative title-from resistance against regimes and oppression, to explorations of our darkner natures, to our inner trysts with longing and desire.

Overview

Thiel uncovers layers of meaning in the evocative title-from resistance against regimes and oppression, to explorations of our darkner natures, to our inner trysts with longing and desire. The book continues themes from Thiel's critically acclaimed Echolocations-connecting personal with historical, language with lineage, and the effects of war on future generations-but visits new physical and emotional terrains-the Black Sea, the double edge of resistance. Thiel achieves a unique lyrical intensity. Her blend of myth and history, gravity and humor, passion and compassion, and the explicit with the suggestive makes Thiel's poetry hard to resist.
