Erik Campbell

The Corpse Pose


€ 13.95

`The Corpse Pose by Erik Campbell is a collection of poems that chronicles one man`s sometimes messy, simultaneously candid and sardonic (and consequentially human) meanderings from the jungles of Papua, Indonesia to the deserts of Phoenix, Arizona, froma 15-year marriage to infidelity and divorce, from answers to errors in a quasi-narrative that is both redemptive and destructive. In poems that adroitly juxtapose contemporary Western society with historical and literary figures, the evanescent Americanculture with that of the East, and through scrutinizing personal relationships against the implicit backdrop of modernity, perceived `progress,` and commotion. The poems in The Corpse Pose are a refreshing (and increasingly necessary) break from what Tony Hoagland calls, `the skittery poem of the moment,` which so often are merely exercises in mere cleverness as a value. Instead, in language that is accessible, allusive, and forthright without being didactic or reductive, Campbell`s poetry does not require that the reader don a decoder ring to apprehend it. Even in his most ostensibly self-referential poems Campbell renders his felt experience in ways that are permeable and consequential to the reader. Readers of Claudia Emerson and Stephen Dunn will find a comfort in these poems that don`t shy away from `meaning,` written in a voice that is trying to speak to the reader crucially`-
