The Gnat's Window By John M Bennett
Paperback: $10.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
John M. Bennett’s The Gnat’s Window shows the evolution of a new form combining the textual, the oral, the visual, and even the artifactual, as the pieces can be seen as windows, or... More > televisions, or computer screens. The poems can be read left-to-right as traditional texts, or up-and-down, or in-and-out, or in any number of other configurations, and thus have participatory and even performative dimensions within what at first glance seems to be a closed form. They are “dreams’ doubled crust” indeed: shaped and emotional, conceptual and somatic, sparklingly clear, and enigmatic.< Less
SELECT POEMS By John M. Bennett
Paperback: $28.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
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
OLVIDOS By John M Bennett
Paperback: $26.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
Bennett has been the avant in avant-garde in the latter half of the 20th century with his Lost and Found Times, one of the great “small press poetry rags” of all time, and then through... More > his Luna Bisonte Prods press. OLVIDOS (“Memories”; though the word also and literally means “things forgotten”) is quite possibly his masterpiece. 339 pages of zany often inarticulate expositions of a kind of lunar madness that can only be the work of the descendent of such poets as Vicente Huidobro and Guillaume Apollinaire. There is most likely something for everyone here from minimalist visual techniques and zen-like koans to architectured poems such as “olvidos y fragmentos” with its enigmatic phrase “lock the boot”. But then the entire text is one immense sequence of enigmatic and puzzling dicta, summed up best in his own portmanteau word “hablacagada”. This is an important work and should place Bennett centrally on the map of great, innovative American poets. - Ivan Argüelles< Less
