    1. I just don t know who who I m supposed to be or how to make enough money I wrote some despairing job poems once and I think these lines that end the job interview are pretty much what I meant by them this book is playful and dark and amazing thank you Abigail who is not on any social media for demanding that I read it.


    2. Things to consider while reading Darcie Dennigan s Madame X 1 The cover art is by Carl Dimitri he also lays claim to the cover image for her chapbook The Dept of Ephebic Dreamery In both instances the image invites texture that I think wholly mimics the texture of the poetry The woman s carmine nakedness against puttied and scaled white She is nowhere and everywhere as the poetry is naturally strange in its place, a place we recognize but seek to forget 2 The Youngest Thing Living in L.A is like [...]


    3. I was a big fan of Darcie Dennigan s first book, Corinna A Maying the Apocalypse, and so I was excited to read Madame X, especially coming from a press I admire, Canarium What I discovered was a significant conceptual jump in Dennigan s work Whereas her debut held structural elements and thematic development that I would argue grounded Corinna in the conceptual realm, Madame X is driven by stronger conceptual forces Honestly, I feel a little reluctant to try to name them, because I think this bo [...]


    4. Who knew that a turn of the century melodrama would grab my interest after a series of less than riveting contemporary literary novels I bought this book when I was in high school and used to cruise library books sales in Boston for old, oddball books I was about to give this book away to the Salvation Army the last time I was home, but when my mom read a paragraph of it aloud it sounded pretty good And it was This is the tragic tale of a young French woman who deceives her husband after he negl [...]


    5. This is a very old edition, 1910 to be exact It was very refreshing I enjoyed it because it did not even have the word damned in it The word looked like this d d That was the worst word in the whole book I also enjoyed the story Jacqueline was thrown out of her house by her husband She had previously run away with another man But she came back to beg forgiveness from her husband She wanted to be with her son who was ill Her husband refused to let her come back, and so for 20 years she was forced [...]


    6. For heysmallpress Madame X is Darcie Dennigan s eagerly awaited follow up to her celebrated 2008 collection Corinna A Maying the Apocalypse and it has already found loads of well deserved critical acclaim Dennigan has a powerful command of language, and is not afraid to warp the form of poems in distinct, difficult, and effective ways She has a knack for constructing poetic monologues in sets of conversational paragraphs, punctuated with extensive ellipses and words that reveal themselves throug [...]


    7. Dennigan s second collection, from 2012 I can see how Dennigan s mastery over tone specifically the tone of snark develops here, especially in poems like The Matriarchy, that will come into full bloom in Palace of Subatomic Bliss I think the poetic form that Dennigan uses for most of this collection I m not quite sure what to call it Celinesque is a bit of a misstep It seldom reads especially well to me, but that may just be personal preference This collection, like her other two, still has wit [...]


    8. Even if I believed the Word became flesh, well I d probably just want to have sex with it.




    9. I gotta read this again before I give it any sort of rating It s marvelous and weird but doesn t always hold together.
