Overview


Poetry. "The remarkable dynamism of this book comes partly from the struggle it enacts between the confessional and postmodern modes. As the title VIVISECT suggests, Lewis often seems to slice right into the living body, exposing the heart itself still beating with its dark secrets. But if language is the scalpel, it is also the flesh, offering at times a tough or slippery resistance, and revealing, when penetrated, more language that leads in multiple and unexpected directions, yet, like the mind, keeps circling back irresistibly to the troubling subjects it most wants to avoid. The result is rich, powerful, and complex poetry that gathers more weight with each reading"--Jeffrey Harrison .
