Rae Armantrout's poetry comprises one of the most refined and visionary bodies of work written over the last forty years. These potent, compact meditations on our complicated times reveal her observant sensibility, lively intellect, and emotional complexity. This generous volume charts the evolution of Armantrout's mature, stylistically distinct work. In addition to 25 new poems, there are selections from her books Up To Speed, Next Life, the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award winning volume Versed, Money Shot, Just Saying, and Itself. Including some of her most brilliant pieces, Partly affirms Armantrout's reputation as one of our sharpest and most innovative writers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"These potent, compact meditations on our complicated times reveal Armantrout's observant sensibility, lively intellect, and emotional complexity. Including some of her most brilliant pieces, this generous volume affirms Armantrout's reputation as one of our sharpest and most innovative writers."-- "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2016 12:00:00 AM)
"These are poems of uncanny freshness and grace with every word a precise and necessary component of the whole. With these poems Armantrout easily demonstrates that she possesses one of the keenest minds of our time."--Sonja James "The Journal" (8/1/2016 12:00:00 AM)
"Rae Armantrout is back in town ... Words are equipment, disassembled and reconstructed to not only make meaning but show process of meaning. Call it modernism, postmodernism, constructivism, avant-garde, or a mix. What we encounter are minimalistic, fragmentary structures that make the whole by breaking the whole ... Armantrout is funny, witty, wise and philosophical. The book is a selfie of the mind's kaleidoscope' poetics and diction don't obscure story and sharp social commentary."--Grace Cavalieri "Washington Independent Review of Books" (7/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
"Armantrout "Remind[s] us that we see only what we have learned to see, what our lives and our societies will let us see, that there is no unmediated nature ... It would be absurd to depict Armantrout without depicting her pessimism, even cynicism, but it would be seriously misleading to say that she gives up on expression, or novelty, or sympathy, or even lyric."--Stephen Burt "London Review of Books" (4/30/2017 12:00:00 AM)
