Product Overview

Connecting themes of exile, submergence, and reclamation, this imaginative poetry collection explores a variety of complex topics, from a harrowing battle with alcoholism to a redemptive love for Dutch landscapes. Constructed around a series of dialogues between Dutch histories, dialects, faces, and voices both past and present, the volume includes a section entitled "Masterpieces," which imagines conversations with and between paintings by Vermeer, Rembrandt, and other Dutch masters on display in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Written on the occasion of the poet?s 50th birthday, the final poem of the book, "Vinegar Days," recalls his drinking daysa period he associates with ambition, pride, and failure.
