Poetry. In her second book, Jennifer Militello investigates the tensions of identity as a source of illness and health. BODY THEASAURUS presents the human physique as a flawed conduit and, through poems highlighting symptoms, antidotes, and diagnostic tests, seeks alternate renderings for the complexities of self. Even as the endangered psyche supplies a filter, gods are confronted, maladies are faced, and actualities are marked, remembered, or lost. The beauty of struggle and the chance for redemption act as counterstream, increasingly evident and—again and again in the poet's verse—indisputably real.
