ORPHIC CANTOS By Ivan Argüelles
Paperback: $15.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Ivan Argüelles does not mine the general American vein of didactic or “therapeutic” poetry that is supposed to be of use in some way. What he creates is an expansive... More > romantic/surrealist summoning of multiple, swarming worlds and histories. He is thus one of the most authentic poets working in English today, and one of the most beautiful in his use of language. His voice is unique, but each of his books has its own timbre, point of view; its own movement and thematic centers. In Orphic Cantos, those centers revolve around the paradoxes of language and consciousness, which are understood to be at the very marrow of the human. The nature of his engagement over the past 40 years has been far more than a desire to write “poetry”; rather, poetry is the embodiment of a complex psychic need, the air he needs to be in the life form and time he occupies. When you read Argüelles' work, you are immersed in the basic human experience. His work is a great treasure. Includes an Introduction by John M. Bennett< Less
Fragments From A Gone World By Ivan Argüelles
Paperback: $19.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
If you are new to surrealism, do not look for temporal narratives, grammatical English constructs, or linear development in "Fragments From A Gone World". Rather find a quiet chair alone,... More > kick back, and let these images diffuse, expand, pulse, explode, rebound, rattle, resonate, sizzle, soar, and fizz in your resting consciousness... or receptive unconsciousness.  The result you will find is haunting, mystical, otherworldly, and... I have found... very vividly transporting.  No two of you will have a similar experience, but all will be charged with a desire to remember and speak of the journey inward. - Slade Schuster< Less
LA INTERRUPTIÓN CONVERSACIONAL By Ivan Argüelles
Paperback: $15.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
If proof were needed that Surrealism is a spontaneous expression of the poetic mind, Ivan Argüelles would be the one to provide it. In the tradition of the madder, darker, and more mystical... More > Surrealists like René Crevel and Antonin Artaud, Argüelles weaves his mad web of images out of an impossible depth. Unlike the more superficial image makers who lay claim to the Surrealist label out of sheer laziness or because “it looks easy”, Argüelles is genuine. - Andrei Codrescu. LA INTERRUPCIÓN CONVERSACIONAL is a whirl, a while, a whirlwind of words that upends the petty poetries that fill the zines and bore even their practitioners. It is simultaneously a tip of the chapeau to the great practitioners—Pound, Joyce, Burroughs—and a wild announcement that there's something more to say. It is pure Argüelles, shot through with the impurities of passion, the unread Classics, and all sorts of exotic foreign literatures and cultures. -Jack Foley.< Less

El gran vato norteamericano Argüelles aquí nos escribe en una de sus dos lenguas maternas, el español, y es una revelación. - John M. Bennett< Less
