The Fraud of Good Sleep is a book of "serious humanist" poems. Theis's poems combine a stunning, classical rigor with a passionate madness that is utterly contemporary and surprising. Charting the magic arc of a modern love story on a banjo string or through birch-white epistles left behind at a deserted campsite, these poems engage in the oblivion of snow, intoxicants, and broken-heartedness since living includes loving where "destruction be our lot." It's a place where fortunes are told: "Degenerate fruit and burned apple wood. / The impure equals the fertile plain." From prose poems and extended lyric sequences to translations and fragments, this book attempts to enfold the living past into the insane present. Or, what you might call "the wild hunt to baptize the dead."
