The Rooster's Wife

For the past years Russell Edson has been producing a body of work unique in its perspective and singular in its approach He is arguably America s most distinguished writer of prose poems Here are contorted Darwinian narratives of apes and monkeys exhibiting absurdly human behavior along with his usual menagerie of elephants horses chickens roosters dogs mermaids and mice Along with his trademark humor i The Rooster s Wife i finds Edson contemplating age mortality and immortality as well br br i Of Memory and Distance i br br It s a scientific fact that anyone entering the distance will grow smaller as he proceeds Eventually becoming so small he might only be found with a microscope if indeed he is found at all br But there is a vanishing point where anyone having entered the distance must disappear entirely without hope of his ever returning leaving only the memory of his ever having been br But then there is fiction so that one can never really be sure if one is remembering someone who vanished into the distance or simply who had been made of paper and ink br br Russell Edson has been called a surrealist comic genius a magician of metaphor and imagination He is all of these and a philosophical poet whose zany expeditions into the twisted labyrinths of logic resemble Lewis Carroll s adventures through the wonderlands of paradox and illusion Perhaps that is why even people who do not read significant amounts of contemporary poetry can immediately appreciate the playful accessibility of Russell Edson s writing What he pulls out of the hat of the subconscious is always unpredictable immediate and surprising br br b Russell Edson b s books include i The Very Thing That Happens i i The Childhood of an Equestrian i i The Tunnel Selected Poems i and i The House of Sara Loo i Rain Taxi Chapbook Series He lives in Darien Connecticut
