At the Devil's Banquets

Poetry. Translated from the French by John F. Deane. The sequential poem is the connective tissue of AT THE DEVIL'S BANQUETS, a collection that holds at its heart the raw materials of familial relations and emotional inheritance. Koltz is tuned to a dark frequency, uncomfortably listening at the edge of the universe and forever seeking clarity of feeling. This work is highly metaphorical, self-incriminating, and spare, with an anger turned gently inward. John F. Deane's direct, clear translations from the French serve Koltz's somber vision exquisitely.
