Description

Puppet Wardrobe is a pop-up book, surprise is in its element. In search of the “dateless lively heat” that Shakespeare sourced to Cupid, Daniel Tiffany finds “the infamous promiscuity of things” in broad display. As watchword, you have the poet’s “slang for the pink redoubt,” the chummy vulgarity beneath prosody’s underthings: say hello to the New Flesh.
