Recepient, 2013 Guggenheim FellowshipWinner, 2012 Witter Bynner Award and Fellowship L. S. Asekoff's "Freedom Hill" is a dramatic monologue divided into three sections. The first concerns the speaker's visit with his aging parents and the death of his father. The second, set at an art party, is a meditation on women, desire, and the nature of the self. In the third, we witness the effects on the speaker of a cerebral stroke, along with his gradual recovery. As readers of Asekoff's unique body of work have come to expect, this highly allusive poem encompasses a wide range of subject matter: Heidegger, C-SPAN, modern art, aging, capitalism, religion. Also familiar will be Asekoff's great variety of tone and verbal ingenuity. Although indebted to high modernism, "Freedom Hill" is an ambitious, thoroughly contemporary meditation on issues very much of the present."
