Aim at the Centaur Stealing Your Wife
Published by Ugly Duckling Presse
In the United States and Europe in the early twenty-first century, a person of mixed ethnicity finds herself questing inside old European art and ideas. Terrible as these things often are, she enjoys recalibrating them, and she is optimistic. Aim at the Centaur Stealing your Wife is the first full-length collection of poetry for American writer and art historian Jennifer Nelson.
Publisher’s Weekly has hailed Aim at the Centaur Stealing your Wife “a debut notable for its delightfully volatile free verse, Nelson tumbles back and forth between the slangy, plugged-in anxieties of a post-Great Recession generation and the resources of traditional art history…Nelson’s compositions display the techniques and attitudes of a restless generation.”
