Journey to the Lost City

By (author) Jonathan Aaron

<p>Taking its title from the cult horror movie classic, Jonathan Aaron’s third book, <i>Journey to the Lost City</i>, is a work of sharp wit, irony, and disarming tenderness. Cool, metaphysically quizzical, almost Eastern-European in sensibility, Aaron’s poems are a far cry from the dull, personal anecdotal quality that infects so much contemporary poetry. Savvy, intelligent, personal yet reserved, they take us on imaginative forays into a world where time swirls the past into the present, juxtaposing historical persons and places with the here and now. This allows the poet to speak with a weird authority that’s both wholly American and timeless, intimate yet without the intrusion of a confiding individual self.</p><p>Aaron is a poet whose work is well known and admired by poets but has not yet reached the larger audience it deserves, though his poems have appeared numerous times in <i>Best American Poetry</i> and his second book, <i>Second Sight</i>, was a National Poetry Series winner. He is a frequent contributor to <i>The New York Review of Books</i>, <i>The Times Literary Supplement</i>, and the <i>London Review of Books</i>, as well as the <i>Boston Globe</i>, and has taught for many years at Emerson College. <i>Journey to the Lost City</i> is his first book since 1992. It has been eagerly awaited by his fans, and will introduce new readers to a poet of great range and stature.</p>
