In many of the poems American history impinges upon, and rises out of, domestic events. Personal crisis propels us outside the daily fragilities of self, both backward into memory and forward in time, seeking answers for survival. Melding themes of the historical, sexual, and political, Janet Sylvester creates a postmodern map of America that is provocative and moving and proves her to be one of the most impressive poets of her generation.
