Description
Mr. West covers the main events in superstar Kanye West s life while also following the poet on her year spent researching, writing, and pregnant. The book explores how we are drawn to celebrities to their portrayal in the media and how we sometimes find great private meaning in another person s public story, even across lines of gender and race. Blake s aesthetics take her work from prose poems to lineated free verse to tightly wound lyrics to improbably successful sestinas. The poems fully engage pop culture as a strange, complicated presence that is revealing of America itself. This is a daring debut collection and a groundbreaking work. An online reader s companion will be available at http: //sarahblake.site.wesleyan.edu."
