SELECT POEMS By John M. Bennett
Paperback: $28.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
A selection from over 40 years of Bennett's work, introduced by Ivan Argüelles. “Where to begin writing about this baffling and certainly most “avant-garde” of all poets living... More > and working in the USA today? Bennett’s reputation is international, and his interest in Mesoamerican culture has drawn him frequently to that part of the world where he is a recognized figure. His experimentations over the years have encompassed multiple techniques, including visual poetry, and his own “polyglottery,” moving in and out of English, Spanish, Portuguese, French or some Mesoamerican language. What may seem aleatory is in fact more intentional and grounded than is first apparent. Bennett has roots in traditional literatures, those of 'Siglo de Oro' Spain and of Elizabethan England, but he is capable of transducing those literatures, metamorphosing them by way of the avant-garde movements of the 20th century, into something utterly innovative and New, such as few contemporary artists have done.”< Less

From the opening poem, “...mumbling in the/attic “roof” out there, mud beyond my head...”, this revised and definitive 2nd edition of John M. Bennett's classic “la M... More > al” confirms its position as one of the poet's best works. Bennett has created a unique language to express the depth and complexity (or the complexity has created the language), of thought and emotion, or emotional thought that are the core of human experience: ...“drain” a laundry think .but think re diction think a congeries of faucets faucets like yr “running-sore” a window to a moon .“a moon all” right a tab le o yr “lips were draped... The language swarms, swells and ebbs, shatters and recoheres, turns and returns, in patterns that resonate with all the currents, hidden and visible, of the self or selves that inhabit us. An essential book that fully realizes the possibilities of language to contain and know what is.< Less
THE WORLD OF BURNING By John M. Bennett
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
John M. Bennett's poetry encapsulates the chaos characterizing our experience of and in this world, giving it a form and presence in words, phonemes, languages, and metaphor so compact and... More > multi-meaningful, so ambiguous, that his poems glitter in their condensed expressive emotionality. The result is a universe that is gritty, carnal, and at the same time metaphysical and sublime, resonating in multiple worlds, cultures, times, and consciousnesses. Bennett does not “write poetry”, but uses poetry as a means of understanding and creating what cannot be understood and what cannot exist, but does very much exist in these pages. In the over 50 years of his writing, he has published more than 400 books and chapbooks, each quite different, yet distinctly Bennett, and has developed a startling variety of innovative techniques and approaches. His Select Poems appeared in 2016.< Less
