Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In Elegy on Toy Piano, Dean Young's sixth book of poems, elegiac necessity finds itself next to goofy celebration. Even within single poems, Young's tone and style vary. No one feeling or idea takes precedence over another, and simultaneity is frequently revealed; sadness may throw a squirrelly shadow, joy can find itself dressed in mourning black. In taking up subjects as slight as the examination of a signature or a true/false test and as pressing as the death of friends, Young's poems embrace the duplicity of feeling, the malleability of perception, and the truth telling of wordplay."--BOOK JACKET.
Subject: American poetry.
