Reliquary Fever: New and Selected Poems gathers the work of Beckian Fritz Goldberg, one of her generation’s premiere voices and its fiercest proponent of a free imagination. From the beginning of her career and in all of her six acclaimed volumes, Goldberg’s poetry has rendered labels — narrative, meditative, lyric, experimental — irrelevant. It is quickened instead by the body as it experiences itself in an open environment: un-codified, stranded by longing and love and grief, defiantly caring in the midst of our violent cultural moment, at once creaturely and divine, precisely sensory, and somehow pluralized by every harrowing turn. With artfully conversational intensity her new poems extend her vision of an earthly cosmos that resurrects itself daily.
