Denise Duhamel's much anticipated new collection begins with a revisionist tale-Noah is married to Joan of Arc-in a poem about America's often flawed sense of history. Throughout Two and Two, doubles abound: Noah's animals; Duhamel's parents as Jack and Jill in a near-fatal accident; an incestuous double sestina; a male/female pantoum; a dream and its interpretation; and tra.

Two by Two" is so worth having. I've been a big fan of Denise Duhamel's work for many years now. This book is simply her best and most courageous. It holds nothing back.

It's a must for poetry lovers and a wonderful selection for those of us teaching contemporary American poetry. No one else does this kind of Americana-infused poetry.

The result is poetry memorable for its structure, its image and sound, but also for demanding that we readers enter into some serious thinking about our place and time. Smart, honest, powerfully inventive, his writing asks the biggest questions while acknowledging that there are no answers beyond the imposed structure of the page.

Born and raised in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, poet Denise Duhamel earned a BFA at Emerson College and an MFA at Sarah Lawrence College. She lived in New York City from 1985 until 1999. Citing Dylan Thomas and Kathleen Spivack as early influences, Duhamel writes both free verse and fixed-form poems that fearlessly combine the political, sexual, and ephemeral. Duhamel experiments with form and subject, creating poetry that challenges the reader's notion of what poetry should be.

Denise Duhamel's much anticipated new collection begins with a revisionist tale--Noah is married to Joan of Arc--in a poem about America's often flawed sense of history. Throughout Two and Two, doubles abound: Noah's animals; Duhamel's parents as Jack and Jill in a near-fatal accident; an incestuous double sestina; a male/female pantoum; a dream and its interpretation; and translations of advertisements from English to Spanish. In two Möbius strip poems (shaped like the Twin Towers), Duhamel invites her readers to get out their scissors and tape and transform her poems into 3-D objects.

At the book's center is "Love Which Took Its Symmetry for Granted," a gathering of journal entries, personal e-mails, and news reports into a collage of witness about September 11. A section of "Mille et un sentiments," modeled on the lists of Hervé Le Tellier, Georges Perec, and George Brainard, breaks down emotions to their most basic levels, their 1,001 tiny recognitions. The book ends with "Carbó Frescos," written in the form of an art guidebook from the 24th century.

Innovative and unpretentious, Duhamel uses twice the language usually available for poetry. She culls from the literary and nonliterary, from the Bible and product warning labels, from Woody Allen films and Hong Kong action movies--to say difficult things with astonishing accuracy. Two and Two is second to none.

I love Denise Duhamel's work. She breaks all rules but does it smashingly! "Crater Face" is poignant, and "Forgetting: Mobius Strip," is brilliantly unsettling as it graphically depicts Alzheimer's.

I agree with all the reviewers here. "Two by Two" is so worth having. "Embarazar," Duhamel's poem about Spanish mistranslations, is worth the cost of the book alone! All of Duhamel's poetry is a bonus!

I love Duhamel's work. She's fiesty, funny, and she's original. There's no one quite like her--which is really saying a lot, considering how much poetry sounds the same to me these days. She's experimental, risky, she's always trying something new in each book. There's a fantastic 911 poem in this book. It's a collage of emails, narratives, dips and twists of media, --it's just fantastic, completely original and modern--24 pages and I could not stop reading it, when I got to the end--I read it again. That poem alone is worth the price of the book. I interviewed her last spring at MiPo. Today I was looking for something 'fresh' to read and I grabbed Two and Two again, just as enjoyable with multiple readings.

Here's the link to the interview:
