PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STORY SYNOPSIS:
The second-person female narrator of “Poetry” takes readers on a journey of the life of a poet from her teenage years to adulthood. In the efforts to live the outré, she becomes the archetype of the angry, convention-flouting poet, waiting tables and writing confessional poetry about her hookups and adventures in adulthood. After numerous failed and disappointing relationships, she begins thinking practically and takes a teaching position at a community college. Despite two published books and a graduate degree, she remains impoverished and alone; the men who drift in and out of her life view her as a symbol of the artistic spirit they wish they had, or that they gave up. This story is a deeply sad, sardonic look at the consequences of choosing the “writing life,” and explores the effects of such a decision.
