Title: Skintight
Author: Zerance, Stephen Daniel
Abstract: "My flesh keeps the soul hostage," the speaker announces in the poem, "The Bathed One." This Aztec philosophy is what <italic>Skintight</italic> revolves around: the idea that the flesh was a mold, a simple barrier that holds the soul back from joining the gods that traveled with the sun. Identity plays a crucial role in this book--each poem representing change and personal growth. The self, much like putty, can be turned into myth. <italic>Skintight</italic> creates a world where the self can be redefined, transformed, and at the end, free.
