Poetry. As with many books, description of Chris Nealons latest, fails, yet in this case it also, unusually, falls. A few moments of demonstration rather than description: nothing you read will help you now- I am not gay, I am from the future!-MorePoetry. As with many books, description of Chris Nealons latest, fails, yet in this case it also, unusually, falls. A few moments of demonstration rather than description: nothing you read will help you now- I am not gay, I am from the future!- Classicism: build your buildings so that even conquering hordes will be like, No way.

Plummet is a post-catastrophic work written largely before the current all-American, i.e. global, plunge--imagine a kind of clairvoyant OHara distracted by Adorno, and Bear Stearns. Its that pit of the stomach feeling, when plummeting one goes from high to low--thats that pit of the stomach feeling--in the pit, of the stomach. Will there be sirens? Toxins? I imagine violence miming reconciliation and then back again. The Believer reporter Stephen Burt observed of his previous collection The Joyous Age that Nealons bracing and bitter debut both enters and mocks the tradition of kaleidoscopic, difficult poetry as grand social critique, and makes most new work in that mode sound sloppy or bland by contrast.

In other words, as it says in this new collection Lifted from the cadences you know and then let fall.
