About In the Mode of Disappearance
I’ve been reading and rereading Jonathan Weinert's first book of poetry, In the Mode of Disappearance, one of the thornier and more rewarding first collections I've encountered in long awhile . . . From "Sauve": "If I could climb into death now/as into a foreign car, where/in all of France would you drive me?" Who wouldn't want to read on?
Weinert is a difficult poet influenced by difficult poets—Blake, Stevens—and he takes an angular, often oblique approach to his subjects. His imagery, diction, and syntax, though, are always acute.
