“Louise is a brilliant poetic creation. The poems that chart her ‘career’ in all its vicissitudes are delicious language games. It is the exactitude of these witty fantasy poems, their ability to evoke the most precise gradations of mood and atmosphere that makes Louise in Love such a memorable, exciting book of poems. It should establish Bang as one of the finest poets of her generation.” Marjorie Perloff

In the stunning follow-up collection to her prize-winning debut, Mary Jo Bang jettisons the reader into the dreamlike world of Louise, a woman in love. Full of splendor and wit, the dalliance of language in Bang’s dramatic postmodern verse-novel is as exhilarating as love itself. Louise and her enigmatic explorers are traveling on a voyage without destination, all the while observing and questioning the often whimsical world around them. Musical and mysterious, in Louise in Love anything goes, provided it is breathtaking.
