Also Know As by Elizabeth Robinson
"In a new century where we all, as it happens, worry about identity theft, Elizabeth Robinson demonstrates its inevitability and also its pleasures. Also Know As is a kind of masked ball. These poems revel in the slippery meanings of common words as they pour through the security perimeters of a text. Robinson writes with a new sly acuity. This beautiful book manages to be very much of its time and also, somehow, ahead of it."
