Product Overview

FRAGments is a book-length poem addressing, albeit obliquely, the fate of a glittering young man who departed the poets world, first, from college in 1960, and then, later, by death, from a strangely prescient Vietnam, in 1967. Megraw, beyond just memory, haunts five hard decades. The hazel eyes, the perfect teeth, the preppy suits, the ease, the careless conversation, the impossible glitter survive as simply FRAGments. The search is unending. Here. Oh. Sorry. No. Sorry. I am very sorry.] Deceased. A Friday morning phone call in 1982 and the concluding There. JUST . . . seed ] are vivid testimony to the poets powerful but largely fruitless task of deconstruction. On the other hand, this book-length poem is a window onto the world of an artist who is facing his waning years, the very gift itself (he is 67) which made life, and death, amenable to any kind of graceful negotiation. *Author: Swartz, David *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 112 *Publication Date: 2006/08/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.27 inches
