BeschreibungIn his second book, Symmetry, Marc J. Straus -- an oncologist as well as a poet -- addresses the hopes and the tragedies of his profession. The work is both a commentary on his experience in the medical field and a collection of rich, vivid monologues written from the patient's point of view. These poems have been composed with a rare sensitivity, not only toward those who are suffering but toward those particulars that distinguish each life -- some poignant, some sweetly comical.Straus exercises a fresh versatility in this collection. "Repetition", an honest and personal reflection, cleverly bends through past and present. Its details are carefully chosen: when I was five / the world / looked green from behind my handlebars."Le Mas de Luberon", with its sensuous language and rueful tone, is a gem in the tradition of Stephen Dobyns: <P" stretch my legs after a mid-day meal: fresh morels / a succulent lamb ragout. As the sun slants over the square, / Monsieur Bouchon opens the orange awning. / One could cook bread on the cobblestones, he says.
