The Mind/Body Problem


The Mind/Body Problem' is the British edition of a prize-winning book of poetry by the renowned American poet and essayist, Katha Pollitt. Informed by a sensibility both keenly political and artfully subversive, she touches on such subjects as 'Lives of the 19th Century Poetesses', 'Collectibles' and 'The Night Subway'. There is a middle section devoted to revisionist tales from the Bible where female characters like 'Martha' and 'Lot's Wife' get the last word. There are pieces that hinge on philosophical questions, that evoke paradox, like the title poem and 'Happiness Writes White'. A mid-life perspective, bringing both wisdom and humour, aligned with the brevity and clarity of her style, makes these poems a delight for the reader and confirm her place at the front rank of Modern American Poets.
