Published: Calamari Press - May 1st, 2014

This debut book of poetry and art is a beautiful miasma; an atmosphere, an idea, and a lexicon that envelopes you. Dark without being morbid, its words and images creep into your consciousness and settle into a pensive, persistent, and brilliant whisper. A fantastic debut from a wonderfully talented poet and artist.

Recalculating By Charles Bernstein Cover Image

Charles Bernstein is on a mission to tear down and build back up everything we know, believe and love about poetry. His first collection in seven years uses translations, homages, and manifestoes to write a new poetry future. Witty and daring. Playful and brilliant. Recalculating will be in the discussion for all the major poetry awards this year.
