Description

"Fearlessly frank" and "unabashedly vulnerable" (Tracy K. Smith), Dorothea Lasky's ROME confronts love and heartbreak in the modern world.


Dorothea Lasky is one of the most talented American poets of her generation. With haunting lines that "recall Frank O'Hara and Allen Ginsberg" (Chicago Tribune) and influences ranging from Drake to Catullus, Lasky fuses the ancient world with the fierceness and heartbreak of everyday life. With each new book, from the grand religiosity of AWE to the flat sadness and nihilism of Black Life to the witchery of Thunderbird, her poems keep gaining an increasingly robust readership and have influenced an entire generation of younger poets. In ROME, Lasky finds herself in the arena of eternal longing and heartsick desire, confronting her ghosts and demons and proving she's "one of the very best poets we've got" (Maggie Nelson).
