Description

In an array of poetic forms from the rhyming lyric to the philosophical meditation to the prose essay, 3 Sections confronts perplexing divisions of contemporary life - a wayward history, an indeterminate future and a perpetual longing to out-think time. This is a vital book by one of America's best poets.

Review quote

"An extraordinarily naked modern consciousness, an intensely experienced dislocation, a beautiful intelligence: Seshadris poetry is exhilarating." --Jonathan Franzen

"Vijay Seshadri is a skeptic and a seeker, and the speaker, the philosophical hero, of these beautifully understated, intellectually ambitious poems is also onewry, self-scrutinizing, keenly observant, abashed, bemused, conflicted, prone to melancholy questions, troubled by his own thoughts, susceptible to daydreaming, determined to figure things out, to sum them up, to find words for them. 3 Sections is a rare adventure in consciousness." --Edward Hirsch
