Medicine Penguin Poets | Amy Gerstler | First Edition

Text block is also crumpled, but clean. Item Amy Gerstler has won acclaim for complex yet accessible poetry that is by turns extravagant, subversive, surreal, and playful. In her new collection, Medicine, she deploys a variety of dramatic voices, spoken by such disparate characters as Cinderella's wicked sisters, the wife of a nineteenth-century naturalist, a homicide detective, and a woman who is happily married to a bear. Their elusive collectivity suggests, but never quite defines, the floating authorial presence that haunts them.

Gerstler's abiding interests--in love and mourning, in science and pseudo-science, in the idea of an afterlife--are strongly evident in these new poems, which are full of strong emotion, language play, surprising twists, and a wicked sense of black humor.

I love her! Mar 16, Janel rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry. Gerstler's poems in Medicine are a wonderful balance of playful, unique, meditative, and honest. The poems in this collection inspire for imitation and writing exercises with their tendency toward ode and persona, their ability to remind the reader how much fun writing can be, and by inviting us in. Jan 19, Josh rated it liked it Shelves: poetry. Liked it! Not entirely my cup of tea, but there was art here. Less poems as a whole worked for me here than in some other poetry I've read, but there were more great lines and sentences than you can shake a stick at.
