This guide references the hardcover edition of the novel from Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. Enchanted “Chanty” Jones, 17, wakes up in the penthouse of superstar musician Korey Fields. Korey has been murdered, and Enchanted becomes the prime suspect. As details of the murder emerge, Enchanted remembers how she and Korey met and found themselves in this situation. Enchanted has a passion for singing, and dreams of becoming a star. Her family doesn’t understand or support her ambitions, and Enchanted feels isolated. One night, Enchanted convinces her mother to take her to an audition, where she meets legendary singer Korey Fields. Korey and Enchanted connect immediately, despite their 11-year age gap, and begin a secret relationship. Enchanted isn’t just starstruck by Korey’s celebrity status: She feels like she isn’t alone anymore, and someone shares her love of music. When Enchanted starts touring with Korey, their relationship shifts, and Korey becomes controlling, abusive, and manipulative. He dictates what Enchanted wears, who she talks to, and even when she is allowed to use the bathroom. He demands sexual favors and accuses Enchanted of being unfaithful when she talks to other men, but he openly cheats on her with other women. He uses drugs to control Enchanted and threatens to kill himself if she leaves him. He also isolates Enchanted from her friends and family by cutting off her contact with the outside world. Enchanted excuses his behavior because she believes Korey loves her, but as her hopes of becoming a singer fade away, she finally accepts help from a concerned flight attendant and is brought home. As Enchanted struggles to heal from the physical and psychological trauma of Korey’s abuse, his fans and supporters launch a full-scale attack on her character. Korey promises that all the harassment can go away if Enchanted gives him one more night. When she agrees, he drugs and attacks her. The story picks up where it began, with Enchanted stumbling through Korey’s apartment and finding him dead. Enchanted becomes the prime suspect in Korey’s murder, and amidst the public outcry, the truth of who Korey Fields really was comes to light: He may have been a star, but he had a long history of using his celebrity status to exploit underage girls while no one stopped him. Enchanted discovers that Korey has hidden a camera in his bedroom, and his murder was caught on tape. The footage shows one of Korey’s most trusted associates—Richie—stabbing Korey right before the tape runs out. Richie and his accomplice are arrested, and Enchanted is free to go. She tries to forget what happened after the footage stopped: She was the one who delivered the final blow that killed Korey Fields.

25/11/2021 Robert Creeley’s “For Love” (published in 1962 but written earlier), ostensibly addressed to Creeley’s wife Bobbie, starts with a simple premise: I have been thinking about what your love means to me. Through the tangled logic of his heart, however, the poet finally concedes that every stab at defining this emotional experience, itself asserted against a life that is otherwise empty and thin, full of pain and loneliness, in the end frustrates him. Given their grounding in the complexities of the emotions, poets since Petrarch in the 14th century have claimed special ownership of love and its tectonic impact. Creeley’s poem, however, reflects upon what happens when figurative language meets difficult reality: The experience of love—rich with contradictions, essential mysteries—evades language. The poem itself reflects Creeley’s mastery of the spare and austere minimalist language of Postmodernism; his quiet poetics, lines at once complex and elliptical, concise and chiseled, mark Creeley as a poet’s poet. He was prolific (more than 60 volumes of poetry across five decades), but his poems can seem intimidating to a lay reader. However, they have been studied (and imitated) now by three generations of poets and students of poetry, which makes Creeley one of the most influential American poets of the fin-de-millennium. Poet Biography Robert Creeley was born in 1926 in the picturesque town of Arlington just north of Boston. A car accident when he was two required removing his left eye. His father, a respected physician, died two years later. Creeley was raised by his mother, a nurse, who moved with Creeley and his older sister to the rural town of West Acton, about 10 miles west of Boston. The family struggled financially. A precocious reader early on, Creeley published his first poems and essays in his high school literary magazine. Matriculating at Harvard in 1943, he left college to serve in the American Field Services as an ambulance driver in the Burma theater of operations. His return to Harvard after the war was frustrating for Creeley—he felt his poetry was underappreciated by the faculty; he published a scattering of poems in prestigious literary journals and left Harvard without a degree. Eager to immerse himself in the exciting experimental poetry of the post-war, Creeley began what became a lifelong correspondence with Minimalist poet William Carlos Williams, who in turn directed Creeley to Charles Olson, whose concept of “projective verse” became instrumental in Creeley’s evolution. From his teaching post at Black Mountain College in North Carolina, Olson had published radical manifestos that theorized that the time was right for American poets to forsake inherited models of prosody and to shape a defiantly new kind of poetry whose very form would reflect the poet’s convictions and designs. The correspondence deepened into a friendship, and Olson offered Creeley a teaching post at Black Mountain College and an editorship of its avant-garde poetry review. For more than 30 years, Creeley would teach poetry at a variety of university posts, most notably at the State University of New York at Buffalo. During that time, he published poetry collections at the rate of nearly one per year. His poetry grew increasingly more restrained, more suggestive, his sense of tempo and line construction influenced as much by his embrace of the free verse lines pioneered by the Beats as by his intuitive perception of the complex metrics of hard bop jazz. Although many readers found his later poetry arcane and unapproachable, younger poets found his lines mystical and suggestive in ways that echoed Eastern concepts of simplicity and directness. Recognition of his impact and his influence mentoring young poets would come with the 1962 publication of his collected poems, which included “For Love”. His output only increased during the 1970s and the 1980s—indeed, he was awarded the 1999 Bollingen Prize, a sort of lifetime achievement award for poets presented annually by the faculty of Yale University. While serving as writer-in-residence at the prestigious Lannon Foundation in Marfa, Texas, a kind of think tank/retreat for artists, Creeley, a hard drinker and lifetime smoker, died in 2005 at the age of 78 from pulmonary distress. He was buried back home in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Arlington, Massachusetts, his simple marble marker offering quiet advice in his signature preciseness and clarity: “Look at the light of this hour”. Poem Text Creeley, Robert. “For Love”. 1962. “The Poetry Foundation”. The poem is dedicated to Bobbie Louise Hall, Creeley’s second wife, and is presumably addressed to her. The poem opens with a direct expression of intent: yesterday, the poet admits, he tried to speak of “it”, to write about the love between the two of them, that “sense above the others” (Lines 2-3) that means so much to the poet. For the poet, everything he knows “derives” from this emotion and from what it teaches him.
