PLAYING MONSTER :: SEICHE

DIANA ARTERIAN
PLAYING MONSTER :: SEICHE

U.S. or International

Playing Monster : : Seiche is a devastating classic. It’s like reading a detective story or “thriller” but with real pain, real consequences, and purity. Art provides a cushion, and the reader is grateful for the “interludes,” the spaces between the brief stanzas. It’s a good book and I’m glad that I read it—but it is testimony, and one feels something cleansing has been accomplished. Poetry exists against terror, Aristotle said; and the community is the audience for what one endures, as it seeps out into us, the chorus, for we’re all the same one. Aren’t we?

Alice Notley


Diana Arterian’s Playing Monster :: Seiche does not play, it mourns—for the astringing of a family in times of trauma and for the liquidation of family in times of abuse. The pathos in here animates me and the writing haunts me. And I so gratefully surrender.

Lily Hoang 


Diana Arterian's poetry is shockingly almost-gentle as it speaks about family violence and childhood terror. In sparse lyrics and tiny knife-like narratives, memory gasps itself out of language and into the white space–into the awful blanks that such searing language digs out. Stone to stone across a life, this never stops. Arterian's poetry is ferociously unblinking, ferociously variable, and ferociously tender.
