Beer strives to get beyond irony, to incorporate all the postmodern tricks and traps the poet can find, and then to join the German Romantics in their sense that there must be more than this, that love is out there after all.

Synopsis

Poetry. Some poets are born, others are transmigrated. John Beer follows his award-winning first collection, The Waste Land and Other Poems, with an even more audacious book. Using Friedrich Schlegel's novel Lucinde as a starting point, Beer has written LUCINDA, an incredible read unlike anything else.
