125 ARMANTROUT, RAE. Money Shot.
Wesleyan University Press, Middletown: 2011. Wesleyan Poetry Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet searches for new ways to understand the world in the wake of the Great Recession. The poems in Money Shot are forensic. Just as the money shot in porn is proof of the male orgasm, these poems explore questions of revelation and concealment. What is seen, what is hidden, and how do we know? Money Shot's investigation of these questions takes on a particular urgency because it occurs in the context of the suddenly revealed market manipulation and subsequent "great recession" of 2008-2009. In these poems, Rae Armantrout searches for new ways to organize information. What can be made manifest? What constitutes proof? Do we "know it when we see it"? Looking at sex, botany, cosmology, and death through the dark lens of "disaster capitalism," Armantrout finds evidence of betrayal, grounds for rebellion, moments of possibility, and even pleasure, in a time of sudden scarcity and relentless greed. This stunning follow-up to Versed—winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and the 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award, and a finalist for the National Book Award—is a wonderfully stringent exploration of how deeply our experience of everyday life is embedded in capitalism. Rae Armantrout is a professor of writing in the literature department at the University of California at San Diego, and the author of ten books of poetry, including Next Life and Veil: New and Selected Poems. "Her follow up to Versed, the prize-winning volume, is due out from Wesleyan University Press in February, and it's a stunner."—Craig Teicher, Publishers Weekly "Working from a minimalist position, Armantrout has the ability to magnify the merest of words into an essay. True to the postmodern tradition, she gives no answer to the provocative questions she raises. Instead Money Shot offers sure proof of one thing: A well-wrought book of poems."—John Herbert Cunningham, Rain Taxi "In a world of real justice, all speech would be sifted in Rae Armantrout's gold pan. In what may be her best book yet, the poems of Money Shot sort our sorry tropes and reveal the fool's gold with which we've smitten ourselves once again."—Susan Wheeler, author of Ledger and Assorted Poems "The breathtaking economy of these deftly crafted poems yields high dividends indeed. This is the real thing, no doubt about it…."—Peter Nicholls, author of George Oppen and the Fate of Modernism

126 ARMANTROUT, RAE. Versed.
Wesleyan University Press, Middletown: 2010. First Wesleyan Paperback Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A double collection from one of the most brilliant poets of her generation. Rae Armantrout has always organized her collections of poetry as though they were works in themselves. Versed brings two of these sequences together, offering readers an expanded view of the arc of her writing. The poems in the first section, Versed, play with vice and versa, the perversity of human consciousness. They flirt with error and delusion, skating on a thin ice that inevitably cracks: "Metaphor forms / a crust / beneath which / the crevasse of each experience." Dark Matter, the second section, alludes to more than the unseen substance thought to make up the majority of mass in the universe. The invisible and unknowable are confronted directly as Armantrout's experience with cancer marks these poems with a new austerity, shot through with her signature wit and stark unsentimental thinking. Together, the poems of Versed part us from our assumptions about reality, revealing the gaps and fissures in our emotional and linguistic constructs, showing us ourselves where we are most exposed. Rae Armantrout is a professor of writing and literature at the University of California, San Diego, and the author of ten books of poetry. Praise for author's previous collection - Next Life: "Poetry that conveys the invention, the wit and the force of a mind that contests all assumptions."—New York Times "Always smart, given to sardonic humor, and surprisingly down-to-earth … —Publishers Weekly
