Product description

From Library Journal

As with Campo, Robson gives you more than you bargained for; aside from having published four books of fiction, five books of nonfiction, and countless poems in all the major journals, she has also published numerous articles in legal journals. (A professor at CUNY's School of Law, she is an expert on lesbian rights issues.) Her first collection of poetry is terse yet throbbing, filled with the raw, aggressive energy of someone who can't be bothered with niceties: "No one needs to tell me/ this is forbidden." But there is definite craft here; these lines aren't just thrown out but clearly thought and rethought: "you spend your days modelling/ mask after mask," says Robson, who must spend her days modelling poem after poem.
Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.


Ardent, passionate, and exquisitely queer...Robson's sense of playfulness is wonderful ...The poems in Masks are startling not only for their quirky, often whimsical, humanity, but also for their imaginative use of form... There is history in this book. Witch burnings. Concentration camps. Poverty. Robson covers terrifying, white hot terrain with unflinching honesty and a poet's heart...Both political and incisive. She takes the magnifying glass of poetic language and investigates detail by detail every aspect of the female condition. -- Lambda Book Report, February, 1999
