Annotations of Contemporary Poetry

Prior to WordForge Reading

Drunken Boat invites you to celebrate the launch of Guggenheim fellow and award-winning poet Lisa Russ Spaar‘s The Hide-and-Seek Muse: Annotations of Contemporary Poetry, featuring her memorable micro-essays on some of America’s finest poets and the relevance of poetry in contemporary life. As novelist Ann Beattie has said about the book, “for people who are a bit wary of poetry, this is the perfect antidote: the poems are amazing, and so are Lisa Russ Spaar’s short essays in the Hide-and-Seek Muse…. anyone who cares about an inner reality that might be somehow communicated – nailed; set free; amplified; questioned — would embrace the chance to read poems that elucidate so much about the mind and the heart….I loved every minute of reading this book.” The book includes poems by the following poets and Lisa’s essays on them for The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s “Arts &Academe” blog:
