Sight Map: Poems (New California Poetry)

Brian Teare


In Sight Map Brian Teare blends the speculative poetics of the San Francisco Renaissance with a postconfessional candor to embrace the "open box" culture of such poets as Robin Blaser and Robert Duncan. Teare offers us with poems that insist at the simultaneous actual embodiment of tactile pleasure—that that's present in the textures of notion and language—as good because the motion of syntax. in part expert by way of an ecological mind's eye that leads him again to Emerson and Thoreau, Teare's strategy and fragmented type are however up-to-the-minute. awesome in its variety, Sight Map serves right away as a cross-country travelogue, a pilgrim's gnostic growth, an improvised box advisor, and a postmodern "pillowbook," recording the erotic conflation of lover and liked, deity and doubter.
