Poetry. BEAUTY MARK, a poetry collection by Suzanne Cleary, was
chosen by Kevin Prufer for the John Ciardi Prize for Poetry. BEAUTY
MARK uses images and subjects drawn from American popular culture
to find transcendent meanings in the natures of beauty, time, and
especially, art-from the beauty mark of Miss Peggy Lee to the
flavors in the Cheese-of-the-Month Club. Kevin Prufer writes,
"These plainspoken poems are not merely conversational, nor are
they in any way simple. Beneath their amiable, glistening surfaces
are deep concerns ... mortality, those qualities that define art,
and our relationship to the divine." Ilya Kaminsky writes that
BEAUTY MARK "bewitches and stuns," and Denise Duhamel calls Cleary
"the real deal."
