DISCREPANCIES AND APPARITIONS

Poems by this young author have been published in the New Yorker, the Nation, and other magazines. This collection of poems is extraordinary; coherent, consistently exciting despite its wide range of subjects, and full of light, air, wit and imagery. The meanings are off-beat and logically obscure; emotionally, however, the effects are opulent, rich in colors and objects, and the linking of apparently Unrelated images and ideas gives these poems a textural brilliance. The pleasure, sureness and economy with which Miss Wakoski plays with words, poem-forms, and complex thoughts is a delight.
