There is a force that breaks the body

Diane Seuss

About This Poem


"This poem is from an in-progress collection of sonnets that are in some measure both traditional and improvisational. I join poets before me in thinking through the reality of pain—physical, spiritual—a subject at odds, it would seem, with the poem's playfulness. I've long been obsessed with sonnets by Donne and Hopkins, who wrestle so valiantly with suffering, and—for a while, anyway—live to sing about it."
—Diane Seuss


Diane Seuss's most recent collection, Four-Legged Girl (Graywolf Press, 2015) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her next book, Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in May 2018. Seuss lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
