ISBN: 9781940853031
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.

ISBN: 9780226925288
Published: University of Chicago Press - March 13th, 2013

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.

The Cineaste: Poems By A. Van Jordan Cover Image

ISBN: 9780393239157
Published: W. W. Norton & Company - April 1st, 2013

Jordan's book lives in that ephemeral residual dreaminess left over from a just-seen movie, with unlikely mind-scenes, extrapolation and fantasy inspired by specific films and, in a wondrous central section, a poetic exploration of pioneer filmmaker Oscar Micheaux. Movies and poetics: a perfect symmetry.

The Iliad

$18.00

Published: Penguin Classics - July 1st, 1991

The Odyssey is full of tales and adventures; the Iliad is one vast combat narrative centering on the psychopathic super-warrior Achilles and warfare jacked up by direct intervention of the gods. Fagles' translation vividly captures the gore, insanity and stark beauty of that most intense of human experiences.  2700 years old and still one of the greats.
