"Pierre Alferi is one of the exciting new breed of French poets who are becoming increasingly popular among younger readers of poetry." "Dealing with sequence and movement, Natural Gaits combines the analytical and scientific with an ongoing, almost breathless, poetic voice; the poem reads almost as if a scientist were to recite his most recent analyses by playing a long saxophone riff: "rather than erratic leaps / oscillations; inversion / of the chord (but each / simple insoluble mood / forgets all the others - not their effects / their becoming (except / for that always latent mood / so clear it would leave nothing / in a latent state and would put / an end to oscillation...." Alferi constructs a linguistic machine of impacted grammar that drives the poem in absolutely breathtaking directions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
