This Time We Are Both

This Time We are Both
  • Title: This Time We are Both
  • Authors: Clark Coolidge
  • Publisher: Ugly Duckling Press
  • Published Date: 2010
  • Description: Poetry. Written in 1991, this previously unpublished work dates back to the publication of such seminal books as The Crystal Text, AT EGYPT, and ODES OF ROBA. Based on his trips to St. Petersburg, THIS TIME WE ARE BOTH uses a dense stream-of-conscious style that employs a fragmentary, often reverse syntax that is a hallmark of Coolidge's poetics. Phrases and images leaps between lines to evoke a heady mix of anxiety and paranoia that document and respond to the collapse of the Soviet Union and a city on the verge of starvation and deterioration. Publication of this title made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
