Was That A Real Woman Or Did You Just Make Her Up Yourself by Christopher Rizzo
I've always been fascinated by what drives a person to become a poet. What force in the furthest recesses of our minds influences us to think that we can translate a chaotic and fatalistic universe. Part lyrical essay, part memoir, part poetics analysis, part poetry itself, Was That A Real Woman Or Did You Just Make Her Up Yourself is Christopher Rizzo's brilliant exposé of his formative years as writer/student fresh out of college all while haunted/mesmerized by a Robert Creeley poem. Drawing on a variety of poetic and artistic influences, Rizzo guided us through the hazardous minefield that is also commonly referred to as "the life a poet."
