Maxfield Parrish: Early and New Poems brings together selected work by Eileen Myles from 1978 through 1995. The collection opens with her poems from 1995, which are visceral, erotic, and self-proclaiming, as Myles's robust voice deeply anchors itself in relationships with her own body, other women, and the natural world. The arrangement of poems in this volume allows the reader to follow Myles's vigorous appetite for beauty amidst "all the daily pain/ & miserable faces & awful air," as she proudly portrays the women in her life in mundane and transcendent settings. Reviling a status quo that can't encompass her life's experiences, she bravely writes what her desire, her anxiety, and her disappointments feel like, recalling what she wrote in a 1978 poem, "Homebody": "Nothing's/ As fetching as the raw."

Black Sparrow Press has done it again. They seem to be the avatars of modern poetry. Eileen Myles is another fine living poet to get the Black Sparrow treatment. This collection combines both old poems from the 7os as well as newer material from the 90s. The old and new material play off of each other very well. She has the ability to write personally without whining. This is a quality often missing in poetry today. Her life has been an interesting one and her poetry is a startling testament to that fact. One poem I really enjoyed was An Attitude About Poetry. It sums up her attitude toward poetry and it is well stated. Other poems like Mysogyny and To The Maiden of Choice (to name a couple) reveal her gift for irony and her passion for life. This is a great collection. I reccommend it for anyone that wants to read new poetry that sounds a barbaric yawp.
