Hosts and Guests : Poems Hardback

Part of the Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets series

Hardback

Description

An exciting new collection from a poet whose debut was praised by Colorado Review as "a seduction by way of small astonishments"Nate Klug has been hailed by the Threepenny Review as a poet who is "an original in Eliot's sense of the word." In Hosts and Guests, his exciting second collection, Klug revels in slippery roles and shifting environments.

The poems move from a San Francisco tech bar and a band of Pokemon Go players to the Shakers and St.

Augustine, as they explore the push-pull between community and solitude, and past and present.

Hosts and Guests gathers an impressive range: critiques of the "immiserated quiet" of modern life, love poems and poems of new fatherhood, and studies of a restless, nimble faith.

At a time when the meanings of hospitality and estrangement have assumed a new urgency, Klug takes up these themes in chiseled, musical lines that blend close observation of the natural world, social commentary, and spiritual questioning.

As Booklist has observed of his work, "The visual is rendered sonically, so perfectly one wants to involve the rest of the senses, to speak the lines, to taste the syllables."
