In "Civilian Histories," her fourth book of poetry, Lee Upton portrays contemporary culture as the many-eyed, monstrous argus, and explores the common gestures between people and among cultures that constitute foreign relations. Formally ambitious, ranging from short, allusive lyrics to long, intricately patterned sequences, Upton s poems reflect on complicity in and vulnerability to violence. Her poems also explore moments of hard-won triumph for the vivid, provocative people who inhabit them."
