Theodore Worozbyt's The Dauber Wings
Theres a love of process in these poems how a meal is made, how language evolves, how memory shapes a life which places me deeply within this poets expansive vision. Worozybt writes we push into the real/world of things by an action/of the hand, the lips, the tongue, and gracefully articulates the moments in which he sees these connections being made and sustained. In this long overdue book, he also demonstrates an unusual range of style and diction; this poet has subtlety and force, can be direct and quiet or mysterious and electric. This is a wonderful debut by a poet whose work Ive enjoyed for years."
Here exultant, there despondent, everywhere fully receptive to the worlds weird plenty, Worozbyt instructs and delights in a dazzling but never decorative language that Roethke would have envied. I keep thinking of a line of WordsworthsNot without hope we suffer and we mournprobably because these poems prove its truth.
Always deeply felt, lovely and wise, the poems in Theodore Worozbyts The Dauber Wings are secret and tender and full of ache; they lacerate and sing, they lull and soothe. Every line has a lapidary grace. This is the rare first book that feels completely accomplished, less like a debut and more like a gift.
