As I Said

Lev Loseff

As I Said

These poems are written from across the poet's life, contemplating his native land of Russia from both a literal and a figurative distance, while at the same time casting a sometimes jaundiced eye on the alien culture of America in which he spent the final years of his life. Loseff's poetry excels in complex imagery, rich literary allusion, and is abundant in formal experiment. Whether absorbed by the world of literature (particularly his fellow poets) or relating real-life experiences, Loseff conjures up a restless and frequently disturbing universe.

Brian Henry

Quarantine :: Contagion

'Quarantine', the first long poem in this book, explores sexuality, subjectivity and the narrative process. Lying in a field beside his dead wife and son, the narrator describes events leading to their deaths (his own included) from the bubonic plague in 1665. A second long poem, 'Contagion', follows, mirroring and distorting the earlier narrative.

The Infinite's Ash

Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

The Infinite's Ash

Víctor Rodríguez Núñez is one of today's most outstanding Cuban writers, although he has lived and worked outside of the island for nearly two decades, first in Nicaragua and Colombia and, since 1995, in the USA. The present collection, based on his selected poems With a Strange Scent of World: First Anthology, 1978-1998 (Havana, 2004), offers a representative sample, as well as a rewriting, of his early poetic work, full of vivid images from the poet's youth and of both rural and urban Cuba.

America

John Kinsella

America

John Kinsella's poem America is very much in the mould of Blake's visionary poem America, A Prophecy but unlike Blake, Kinsella does not express himself in allegorical terms but delivers a trenchant, uncompromising and direct denunciation of the world's unchallenged superpower.

"Nothing ever came again to warn her", Saskia Hamilton writes, and nothing comes to warn the reader of the adamantine turmoil, the ardent and articulate perceptions in these original poems... We are taken, figuratively and literally, by storm." Forrest Gander

Graft

Brian Henry

Graft

In his citation for the 2001 George Bogin Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, which Brian Henry won with this collection, Donald Revell writes: "I honor and admire these poems for their groundwork understanding. Here, oppression is shown forth as a condition of language, a violence of syntax. And here, in resistance to oppression, extraordinariness lifts a beautiful, if harried, affirming sound.
