Joyce Peseroff s new collection teases the nature of self-knowledge from a world where identity is fluid, character fragmented, landscape overwhelmed, and culture riven. In poems that dramatize politics, eros, myth, and mortality, Peseroff s edgy wit cuts through the classical Greek definition You re not an animal/or a god, take the middle path to parse our century s slippery dialectics. Playful and complex, Know Thyself distills music from the salt of human experience."
