Bern Mulvey:
DEEP SNOW COUNTRY

"Opening with a reflection on the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and its aftermath, the poems in the book's first section are one of the most powerful poetic responses to a public tragedy that I've ever read. At times elegiac, at times bitterly funny, these poems are held together by Mulvey's rigorous technique, his moral vision, and a belief that art might help us assimilate loss and transform even the most dreadful experience into something valuable and lasting."
Steve Gehrke

 

Dennis Schmitz: ANIMISM

"Part demotic, part prophetic, these poems ensoul the inanimate and give animal force to the spiritual as they speak of and for the souls of "the blurt & syncopated chirr of chain / saws"” the "nightshift at Westmark Meats," Predator drones, "the important potatoes // sending out white feelers in the kitchen bin." "You can’t learn levitation," Schmitz declares, but he has learned it: these poems hover gorgeously between the chthonic and the empyrean, with a rush of beating wings."
Bruce Beasley

  Enchantee

Angie Estes: ENCHANTEE

"Enchantée: you will be, when you meet these poems. The enchantment has to do with incantation: the way Angie Estes puts experience into song. She lets words take the initiative, as Mallarmé said poets must, to see where the secret logic of sound will lead. This is a poetry of style, elegance, and fresh surprise, for the ear and the eye, the heart and the mind. It reminds me why I read."
Langdon Hammer

 

The Nothing Bird

Pierre Peuchmaurd:
THE NOTHING BIRD

(translated by E. C. Belli)

"These translations sing. From first page to last, I savored reading this volumewhich includes a selection of poems written over three decades of Peuchmaurd's career. With generosity of mind and fine erudition, E. C. Belli has placed her impressive gifts as a linguist and poet in the service of translating a poet whose work feels necessary for our souls."
Cynthia Hogue
