Overview

Double Self-Portrait explores doubling and reproduction in art, memory, culture, nostalgia and fatherhood. Divided by four longer, more autobiographical poems, Double Self-Portait is a deeply layered collection, one that at times speaks directly to the reader and at other times is metatextual. Bees, cicadas, music and photography swirl through these poems, bounded as they are by the resistance to and embracing of responsibility. This is a collection where the poems work individually and together, subtly building toward a single theme that slowly coalesces during the reading to create a collection that resonates in your mind long after the book is closed.

Reviews

"Double Self-Portrait resembles a cabinet of curiosities, yet Lindsay’s poems are propelled by something far greater than the mere curiosity in the surrounding world. "

Margaryta Golovchenko

"Double Self-Portrait by James Lindsay resembles a meta-textual hive, full of a buzzing energy created by the many connections the poems weave among themselves. "
