On my way to work today

By Rebecca Wolff

I saw a dead cat on the side of the road and it reminded me of my intention to write about Jennifer Moxley‘s new book, Clampdown. Actually first it reminded me of the book itself, and then it reminded me of my intention. So I’ll do that later.

    Weird! I just got Clampdown in the mail today! But haven’t clamped down on it yet and probably won’t for a while: I buy poetry books much faster than I can read them . . .

    Very interesting book–I quoted a villanelle from it in my Chillin’ with the Villies thread, one that could probably have been written by William Empson. I know Steve Burt has compared Jennifer to Shelley; this book seems to be clamping forward into a diff. century, more classical than romantic.

    Annie, are you saying your thread-style could be compared to that of William Empson’s? Heavens!

    Anyway, I promise I’m going to get on this soon, as soon as I remark on something completely unrelated back over on the main-page.

    Uh….no…”a villanelle” was the referent for “one”. . .
