Body & Glass extends Koeneke's experimentations in Etruria with a tightly woven set of more compact poems that brighten and sharpen the lyric's usual corners. The 'anonymous' forms of folk song and epitaph, parable and textual fragment, arrange to sketch the selves, living and dead, who might say them. These are poems of an improvised interiority, shared between the poet and reader but broad enough for multitudes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The naturalness of Koeneke's essayistic explorations and his adept weaving of disparate sources make this an engaging, thoughtful, and consistently surprising collection."--Publishers Weekly

"How refreshing; culturally grounded poems as if culture mattered."--Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal

"Here is a preternatural social sensibility that remains poignant even as it confronts what today passes for the sentimental; here is an elegant figural technique that never disappoints."--Judith Goldman, Drunken Boat


"The poems in Body & Glass read as if they're dissolving in the volatile solvent that is thinking, and though it's easy to be carried away when Koeneke waxes with tools like assonance and spontaneous rhyme--carried away to a place where recognition of the poem's work can often be dusted out of vantage--it is just as important to see the back and forth between body and glass, between naming and name. The cumulative effect of reading many of Koeneke's poems in one sitting feels like the mind being crocheted, portions hidden away into lockets, others coded into nodes."--Tyler Flynn Dorholt, 4squarereview
