Having had the honor of introducing at the "Art and Letters: Journal of Contemporary Culture" awards this year, I have the benefit and the bais of being able to attach Ms. Darlington's voice and presense to these poems. This book addresses gender as a theatrical contempt through the voice of a drag-queen. While some of these poems stand alone--"Aphrodite's Identity Crisis" and "Not Wanting a Child," for example--some pointedly do not hold water alone--the prose poems in the Discount Sonnets section are a perfect example.

This book takes a theatrical persona and apts it up with wit and ocassional pathos. When the poems work, they are very human poems that verge on being sublimely hilarious; however, when these poem's don't work, they seem like flippant and shallowed out attempts at outlining the problems of gender.

The peoms work more often than not, but the ambition of these poems make the failure all the more obvious when one happens on a poem that is not working.

Tenaya Darlington's Madame Deluxe heralds the coming of what will hopefully become an exciting new trend in poetry: Fearlessness. Not the kind of fearlessness that fools poets into believing that four letter words are cutting edge - they are not, not anymore. And not the kind of fearlessness that turns some poets down lanes of obscurely personal self-disclosure while others select the opposite tack, structural obscurity of a density barring individual interpretation. No, Darlington's is a new and thrilling breed of poetic fearlessness - and Madame Deluxe is its call to arms. Here we have a poet who has studied those who have come before her and is not afraid to learn, interpret, update, and, as Ezra Pound advised, " Make It New". In her debut collection, Darlington experiments with alphabet poetry - the untitled piece which kicks off the book - free verse, prose poetry, wonderfully provocative sudden fiction, and on into areas which, as of yet, remain unnamed and undefined. Question and Answer poetry? Mail order verse? Does it really matter? Artists, true artists, break ground and leave the rest of us behind, wandering in the ambiguous bliss of the dreams they create. With Madame Deluxe the National Poetry Series has heralded the entrance of a fearless new poet, Tenaya Darlington: an artist who has truly dreamed a far dream...

Sassy. Fun. Full of attitude and...spunk. Definitely spunk. Madame Deluxe is a woman hell-bent on making the reader wake up and take notice and this book Madame Deluxe is a wonderful collection of poems written in a voice that screams "this ain't your momma's boring, formal poetry, no ma'am!!!" And it isn't. Instead, this is an earthy, spirited verse that can affront you, take you in, teach you something and make you like it-- all at the same time. The poems that aren't Madame Deluxe are written in the voice of an alternate madame, or madames, women whose lives trekked down one path or another, who exist with an idea of a Madame Deluxe quietly keeping them aware of the decisions they make every day. The occasional use of profanity may seem gratuitous at first, but as the book rolls on, it builds in meaning and makes sense: Madame Deluxe doesn't have time to be polite- for better or worse, she's busy making you aware of the life you lead and its many possibilities. A fun book in the spirit of contemporary poets like Cathy Bowman and Denise Duhamel, with some of the reflectiveness of a Belle Waring. Good stuff!

I love contemporary women poets who move away from Truth & Beauty towards more concrete expressions of pleasure and desire. Darlington's poetry reads as richly as a novel and her depictions of women personae combine the freakish fascination of the circus atmosphere with the lush grape-eating sensuality of an old Cleopatra movie. It's one of the best books of poetry I've ever read.

There should be a drink called Madame Deluxe: vodka, cherry liquer, and lawnmower fuel. Darlington's poems won't fit in your Christmas stocking, but don't let that discourage you. This naughty, frenetic, genius-laden book should satisfy those who want their poems big, bad, and leathery. Don't leave this book around children! It will detonate, and then you won't have the kids around for when Madame Darlington's next collection comes hurtling and screeching into a universe near you.
