    The Interrogation - Poems

    This surreal, darkly humorous, and relentlessly probing poetry collection resides at “the disorienting juncture between fairy tale and nightmare” (Publishers Weekly). 
     
    Suffused in psychology, uncertainty, and desire, Michael Bazzett’s The Interrogation is an unsparingly honest catechism of the self. In the title poem, a speaker—at once questioner and questioned—insistently asks: Who? What? Where? Why? Why our cruelty? Why our loneliness? And how do we connect? 
     
    These poems read like disorienting fables and seemingly familiar folktales. In them, we are escorted to dreamlike cities, brought into the rich earth under a simple mattress, and drawn inside the mind, where “Nobody fails at meditation / like I do.”

    Everyone knows something of Shakespeare’s sonnets, even if only in memorable fragments like ‘the darling buds of may’ or ‘remembrance of things past’ ‘the marriage of minds’. For centuries these wonderfully-crafted, intense lyrics have stood for something valued about youth, love and the emotional complexities belonging to that time of life. This new recording presents all 154 of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, using the New Cambridge Shakespeare texts.

    Crow-Work - Poems

    From the award-winning author of Augury, a poetry collection that examines the power of great works of art. 
     
    “What is a song but a snare to capture the moment?” This central question drives Crow-Work, Eric Pankey’s ekphrastic exploration of the moment where emotion and energy flood a work of art. 
     
    Through subjects as diverse as Bruegel’s Procession to Calvary, Anish Kapoor’s Healing of Saint Thomas, Caravaggio’s series of severed heads, and James Turrell’s experimentation with light and color, the author travels to an impossible past, despite being firmly rooted in the present, to seek out “the songbird in every thorn thicket” of the artist’s work. Short bursts of lyrical beauty burn away “like coils of incense ash”; bodies in the light of a cave flicker, coalesce, and disappear. By capturing the ephemeral beauty of life in these poems, Crow-Work seeks not only to explain great art, but also to embody it. 
     
    Praise for Crow-Work 
     
    “Eric Pankey’s sensibility is an unerringly generous one: he is always willing to step first onto unsteady ground, to test it for those who might follow. The poems of Crow-Work, like good gleaners, seek out possibility and sustenance. They are skilled, deft, and dazzlingly alert. Just when I think they have brought me as close as possible to the dark and unknowable things that make awe possible, they bring me closer. The journey is unnerving, intimate, and thrilling.” —Mary Szybist 
     
    “The delicacy and accuracy we have come to expect from Eric Pankey are here on display and as deftly deployed as ever. Pankey remains one of our leading practitioners of the metaphysical poem.” —C. Dale Young 
     
    “[A] wonderful exploration of the emotional power of art.” —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review, PW Picks)
