Description - My Index of Slightly Horrifying Knowledge by Paul Guest

My Index of Slightly Horrifying Knowledge is a fierce and original collection--its generosity of voice and emotional range announce the arrival of a major new poet.At the age of twelve, Paul Guest suffered a bicycle accident that left him paralyzed for life. But out of sudden disaster evolved a fierce poetic sensibility--one that blossomed into a refuge for all the grief, fury, and wonder at life forever altered. Although its legacy lies in tragedy, the voice of these brilliant poems cuts a broad swath of emotions: whether he is lamenting the potentiality of physical experience or imagining the electric temptations of sexuality, Guest offers us a worldview that is unshakable in its humanity.
