Poetry. Award-winning poet Jennifer Militello's third full-length collection, A CAMOUFLAGE OF SPECIMENS AND GARMENTS, casts a smokescreen of selves. Fragmentary letters addressing illness and struggle are interspersed with ventriloquisms in the voices of mythological heroes and long-dead composers, ancient goddesses and murdered girls. Intricate dictionaries offer multi- layered definitions that, like layers of clothing or ancient amulets, are meant to provide shelter from a world that cannot be controlled. This captivating book stitches together a plethoric identity so as to examine the disguises we all wear.
