DOROTHEA LASKY

Rome: Poems
(Liveright, 2014)

with ADAM FITZGERALD
The Late Parade
(Liveright, 2013)

"Her Rome is huge and intrepid and perfect, a total gift."—Maggie Nelson, author of Bluets

With each new book, from the grand religiosity of AWE to the flat sadness and nihilism of Black Life to the witchery of Thunderbird, Dorthea Lasky's poems have kept gaining an increasingly robust readership and have influenced an entire generation of new poets, fusing the transcendent vision of the New York School with a kind of performative confessionalism, bringing the force and power of the classical world into the everyday.

Rome, her fourth collection, is a book populated with love's proxies, its wounded animals and desiccated bodies, in league with her chosen poetic company: Catullus and Anne Sexton, Nicki Minaj and Drake. In these poems of high lyricism, Lasky fuses the ancient world, with all its grandiosity and power, with the fierceness and heartbreak of our everyday world, where sometimes all a poet can do is to carry her line like a weapon as she slashes across a landscape of language, strange fascinations, real people, and the imagination.

DORTHEA LASKY is an assistant professor of poetry at Columbia University. Her poetry has appeared in the Paris Review, Poetry, and the Boston Review.
