Description - Polynomials and Pollen by Jay Wright
A gift for his wife, Jay Wright's Polynomials and Pollen explores the complementary exigencies of abstraction and physicality. In five sections, each arranged under the aegis of a tutelary concept--from the Yoruba, Akan, Bamana, and N huatl--the book is a constellation of protophilosophical inquiry into notions of order, disarray, evidence, flowering, and return; it is also a dynamically visceral work whose feelingtones register rage as well as devotion.

Author Biography - Jay Wright
Jay Wright, an African-American poet, essayist, dramaturge, and theologian, was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Academy of American Poets awarded Wright the Fellowship for distinguished poetic achievement. In bestowing the award, J.D. McClatchy commented, "Jay Wright's books have appeared like summer lightning, sudden and unexpected, brilliant in the surrounding dark." He has written ten books of poetry and a play. Before he became a poet and studied comparative literature, he played semi-pro baseball with the San Diego Padres.
