Overview

Once More With Feeling by Tina Cane


Poetry. ONCE MORE WITH FEELING is a collection of poems that takes us through urban and personal landscapes. It shows us particular landmarks of New York, as well as a particular New York, one lived through the experience of a speaker that boldly expresses anecdotes of all hues. This is a book about her relationship with a place that has been appropriated into a personal space. The reader is privy to the negotiations that take place in the construction of relationships. ONCE MORE WITH FEELING is an honest and gritty book that invites us to experience the connection between the self, the spaces we inhabit, and the people who share these spaces with us.

"Just as her 'earliest hands dug for light in wet sand,' Tina Cane's lyric reveries uncover the treasured details of a youth steeped in New York's once-marginalized neighborhoods. Note the tensions in her 'minor histories,' for example, the self-deprecating resolve that asserts the nobility of cultural experiences we recognize as our own even in the exactness of Cane's personal vision. ONCE MORE WITH FEELING is a mesmerizing debut come to dignify our most worldly passions."—Gregory Pardlo
