The Red Gaze Summary

The Red Gaze by Barbara Guest

The Red Gaze is one long poem divided into smaller poems on imagination and time, beginning with "Nostalgia" and ending with "Supposition." Within the quietude of these poems, a gentle music unfurls; precise and generous. The idea of imagination propels The Red Gaze; references and allusions to art, literature, and history create what has become a signature of Barbara Guest's work - the poem as the event itself. There is something very immediate, alive, and mysterious about these poems. Reading, we inhabit the art - for a brief time suspended in its vision. Over the past decade, Guest has increasingly come to be seen as a major force in innovative poetics. These new poems are delicate, rarified, and unshakable.

The Red Gaze Reviews

"The Red Gaze is formed by light and the genius of fleeting observation. A red gaze is, to me, the after-gaze behind an after-gaze, the final dab of light on a painting. This is a book of pure pleasure and transcendent joy. I love it." -- Fanny Howe, author of Invisible
