A finalist for the 2015 National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award

A dazzling new collection of poetry by Terrance Hayes, the National Book Award-winning author of Lighthead

In How to Be Drawn , his daring fifth collection, Terrance Hayes explores how we see and are seen. While many of these poems bear the clearest imprint yet of Hayes's background as a visual artist, they do not strive to describe art so much as inhabit it. Thus, one poem contemplates the
principle of blind contour drawing while others are inspired by maps, graphs, and assorted artists. The formal and emotional versatilities that distinguish Hayes's award-winning poetry are unified by existential focus. Simultaneously complex and transparent, urgent and composed, How to Be Drawn is a mesmerizing achievement.

I am really digging TH right now (Jan. 2019) . Refreshing honesty and daring. His tomes are pocket buds for brothers.
