Book summary

Winner of the 1998 Barnard New Women Poets Prize

The poems in Jena Osman's first volume embody the poem as performance, revealing the tensions between narrative coherence and Brechtian self-consciousness, and our constitution by "characters" of all types. Playful, mysterious, and challenging, The Character is for anyone interested in the inscription of power by means of language. [via]
