Self-Portrait

by Brian Johnson
 

Poetry. The 20 prose poems of SELF-PORTRAIT comprise a tour of a psyche that is alternately hopeful, despairing, restless, nostalgic, and grandiose. The portrait that emerges is a combination of autobiography and literary invention. Personal memories mingle with fables, prayers, pastoral lyrics, and movie stills to reveal a self with many pasts and many guises.

Overview


Poetry. The 20 prose poems of SELF-PORTRAIT comprise a tour of a psyche that is alternately hopeful, despairing, restless, nostalgic, and grandiose. The portrait that emerges is a combination of autobiography and literary invention. Personal memories mingle with fables, prayers, pastoral lyrics, and movie stills to reveal a self with many pasts and many guises. Ranging from childhood fantasies of terrestrial and sexual exploration to adult recognitions of failure, SELF-PORTRAIT bears witness to one person's search for clarity and fulfillment. Part of the Key Satch(el) quarterly chapbbook series from Quale Press.
