Prospect of Release — Mandel '71

Product Description

By Tom Mandel, Class of 1971

These 50 poems, 700 lines (neither number divisible by three), confront self, other, identity, loss, history, language and meaning through the most concrete instance we have of what poststructuralists call "an absent presence" — the death of a parent. This loss of apparent meaning (who gave you your name?) doubles (this father arrived by marriage, already a rhyme for the dead blood kin that came before), invoking tradition, transmission, instruction.
