Description - Augustine in Carthage, and Other Poems by Alessandro Porco
A daring new collection of poetry from Alessandro Porco. Equally crude and charming, locker-room macho and sensitive, these poems are always singularly marked by formal ingenuity and stylistic elan. A poetry that gleefully articulates the possibilities of a 21st century balls-deep masculinity, Porco's new collection begins with its most important work, 'Augustine in Carthage,' a
trans-historical re-imagining of Book III of St. Augustine's Confessions, which includes (among other things) philosophising strippers, Tampico bombers, rabbit holes, coprology, and comic-book heroism.
