Revelator - Poetry by Ron Silliman (PDF Digital Download)

Details 

NEW!

Revelator is the opening poem in a major sequence entitled Universe. It's the jumping off point for a work that, were Ron Silliman to live long enough, would take him three centuries to complete. We are hopeful. Universe is a poem of globalization and post-global poetics (an important reason for publishing this key section outside of the USA ).

The Eternal Wall by Dot Devota

Details 

"In the winter of 2008, Isreal launched Operation Cast Lead against Gaza. I began writing a poem. That following summer, I traveled to the Middle East to meet with Arab writers (with the poet Brandon Shimoda). In Lebanon, Abir Ward invited me to the village of Baakleen to live with her and her family, relatives of the late poet Nadia Tueni, in a five hundred year-old castle built by their ancestors on the rim of a mountain above a fig orchard. Each night fog invaded the orchard and made sweeter the figs growing there. I slept in a room where previously a bomb had fallen through the ceiling above the bed and exploded."

Bent at the Spine - Poetry by Nicole Markotic - ePub Digital Download

Details 

ePub format for Kobo and iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch.

"you" is a disconnected third party - the reader is left in the position of an eavesdropper, or a listener, or a karmasurplus author. Its relentless interrogation resonates at an invigorating pace: cultural difference, different bodies, diffident accents, deafening rhymes. Sometimes rapturous, often vulvy, the poems audaciously teach "you" how to read them, allowing the last-minute-cram-session to be a delving, a plunging, a repeating discovery.

Tuft - Poetry by Kim Minkus - ePub Digital Download

Virtualis: Topologies of the Unreal - Poetry by David Dowker & Christine Stewart - ePub Digital Download

Details 

ePub format for Kobo and iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch.

Virtualis: Topologies of the Unreal is a poetic investigation of melancholia and the baroque. As a collaborative reading of writers such as Walter Benjamin, Christine Buci-Glucksmann, Giorgio Agamben, Gilles Deleuze, Charles Baudelaire and Arthur Rimbaud, David Dowker and Christine Stewart have created a series of linguistic interjections that run from the allegorical barricades of the baroque to the topological confound of the modern, incorporating (for example) Medusa and the Sphinx, aestivating snails and the alchemy of bees. Lush and extravagant, this is writing tuned in to the terrestrial spectacle.

Fur(l) Parachute - Poetry by Shannon Maguire - ePub Digital Download

Details 

ePub format for Kobo and iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch.

fur(l) parachute claims as its surrogate the Old English poem “Wulf and Eadwacer.” Declining from a mutant echo of this nineteen-line fragment that appears in the tenth century Exeter manuscript as a text that might be a riddle, or an example of a woman’s lament, or even a broken elegy, the language of fur(l) parachute is further disrupted by such texts as instructions on how to make a parachute lure for fly fishing or the misreading of mathematical knot diagrams. Wryly troubling origins, this poem multiplies its outlawed longing for all that cannot cross.

Price: $9.99

PETRARCH by Tim Atkins

Details 

New British Poets No. 2

Who is this Petrarch? Who is this Tim Atkins? He is an English poet profoundly affected by the American ear of the 1970s to present. These are meant to be translations, but they are more akin to transformations of everything Atkins has ever read or done, including what he saw at breakfast. In that way, they are Buddhist reckonings with the daily, not unlike Joanne Kyger's or Philip Whalen's recordings of microfluctuations in perception.

The Red Album - Fiction by Stephen Collis (PDF Digital Download)

Details 

PDF format for PDF Readers.

In the tradition of Borges, Nabakov, and Bolaño, The Red Album is a work of fiction that questions historical authenticity and authority. Divided into two parts, the book begins with an edited and footnoted narrative of dubious origins. In the second part, a section of "documents" (including essays, memoirs, a short play and a filmography) shed light on the first narrative. Familiar characters are revealed to be writers, and the writer and editors of the initial narrative are revealed to be characters. As the ghosts of social revolutions of the past are lifted from the soil in Catalonia, and a new revolution unfolds in South America, the number of mysteriously missing author/characters grows almost as fast as new author/ characters emerge and complicate and scatter the threads of the story.

A is a work of fiction in which André Alexis presents the compelling narrative of Alexander Baddeley, a toronto book reviewer obsessed with the work of the elusive and mythical poet Avery Andrews. Baddeley is in awe with Andrews's ability as a poet - more than anything he wants to understand the inspiration behind his work - so much so that, following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims throughout literary history, Baddeley actually tracks Andrews down thinking that meeting his literary hero will provide some answers.
