More > 1976), and The Egyptian Poems (Hipparchia Press, 1983). Also included are Robert Duncan's afterword to the Hipparchia edition, as well as a new interview with Dahlen about her early work. With these long out-of-print publications newly accessible, readers can mine the formative explorations that open onto Dahlen's life work, A Reading. According to Duncan in his afterword: "The creative field addressed, worked, and kept at work in Out of the Third, A Letter at Easter, and the present set of Egyptian poems sets into motion resonant elements in my own poetic consciousness so that I hear new harmonics.

Painting Is Finite By Hugo García Manríquez

In Painting Is Finite, Hugo García Manríquez traces the edge of elemental life via elemental form. First published in Spanish under the title, Los Materiales (Mexico City: Fonda... More > Editorial Tierra Adentro, 2008), this volume presents Manríquez’s first English-language collection. In these poems, memory is a verb: it “behaves in both directions / the result that it casts / the present, that is, mobility” so that “nothing that preceded you / has prepared you for the experience / ‘the return of painting.’” In such a return, we confront the incommensurable as a material surface, likened here to the written: “history is the only matter excreted by / that which dies,” and thus “Newspapers seek volunteers for the shadow on the front page.” This poetry inhabits the edges as a vocation, urging us into relation with the materials.< Less

Filtered through Ponge’s approximate presque, the pre of the ”Ding an sich,” this collaboration between Tina Darragh and Marcella Durand writes and rewrites the endlessly rewritten... More > eco-/ego-poetics of our moment. All too human, these bellwethers appeal to the sentient and non-sentient, repeal the very sentences they parse into phrases, and limp toward, having lost or misplaced what can only be found at the dead letter office—the poem, the book, etc. “…and what becomes of this in the end? A habitable place,/ strollable justification for aggregable surface gables, gagle…active-ish, a little stream in the bed.”---Tyrone Williams< Less
