Very much worthy of the recognition it has received including this year's National Book Award Hayes' poetry is what we most hope for in the art a natural attention to language that manifests eually in the sound and the sense of it The auricular pleasures are both audible and subtle The bride of eaves or the easy bride of naves In one poem Hayes plaits the old story of the four blind men trying to describe the elephant with meditations on the body and boundaries In another he uses Gwendolyn Brooks' We Real Cool to provide end words for his lines Though there's a pure pleasure to Hayes' inventiveness there's also immeasurable gravitas in how that knack for invention illuminates the larger world of the collection

Terrance Hayes ´ 7 Free read

LightheadRy that is both dark and buoyant Cultural icons as diverse as Fela Kuti Harriet Tubman and Wallace Stevens appear with meditations on desire and history We see Hayes testing the line between story and song in a series of stunning poems inspired by the Pec. I like how Terrance Hayes keeps a distance between himself and his poems There's an autobiographical element to many of his poems but it's always playfully elusive like the Blue Terrance poems in Wind in a Box which is still my favorite book of hisThis book is great too playful and powerful as Wind in a Box ambitious in its subject matter and its formal ground breaking I was especially blown away by the Golden Shovel poem which uses the entirety of Gwendolyn Brooks' We Real Cool for its end words twice once to describe a story of a boy and his father at a pool hall and once for a chant delivered by a disaffected urban we who sing until their blood is jazz The main form that keeps popping back up in the book is this pecha kucha style poem There are four I think pecha kucha poems each composed of twenty stanzas of four or five lines each stanza with a title the stanzas act as slides you might see in a business presentation They are long poems and there's so much starting and stopping in these poems that it's hard to keep your energy going the whole time even though there are some great individual sections within each of them In fact I doubt anyone else could do this form better than Hayes I just don't think it's a great form to begin withBut just the fact that Hayes would think to borrow the pecha kucha for his poetry shows what an inventor he is and this book is full of that sort of alchemical crazed artistic energy
