To Light Out

To Light Out
  • Title: To Light Out
  • Authors: Karen Weiser
  • Publisher: Ugly Duckling Press
  • Published Date: 2010
  • Description: Poetry. "The poems in TO LIGHT OUT enact a kind of mystical belief--call it a faith--that language is the means by which we conjure the self and its relationship with others. In Weiser's hands, poems are language illuminated by grace, and the world, in light of such sudden sight, becomes 'The distance into versions of itself / whose miles begin to resemble pale maps / old photographs with studied shadow / inside each female self / composed like a nineteenth century diorama / all heft and movement of hands.' The meditative variation at play in this ambitious collection shines forth brilliantly, at any hour of the day or night"--Susan Howe.
