ISBN 0-914061-91-7
In coruscating prose, Stephen Akey’s Library depicts, more vividly than it ever has been done, a culture that most of us know only through hearsay and cliché: the interior workings of a public library.

$14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 0-914061-92-5
Robert Morgan writes: “Gilbert Allen has fun with words. It is a pleasure to watch him hit nail after nail on the head. These are poems of delightful wit and wise laughter. Allen has come into the fullness of his voice and vision, and found the idiom of our time, in these poems of the all-too-human comedy, of humanity.”

SECOND CHANCES
GILBERT ALLEN

ISBN 0-914061-47-X

NORTH STAR
L. S. ASEKOFF
hardcover $20.00, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-57-7
Alfred Corn writes: “In L. S. Asekoff’s field of vision, stars, roses, swans, and mirrors have left the walled garden of Symbolisme, ventured into contemporary sites of upheaval, and put on the black leather of Surrealism without, I think, ever relinquishing a fundamental cultivation and refinement. Reading these poems, you’ll be briefly reminded of Asekoff’s exacting precursorsKafka, Desnos, Celan, Joseph Cornell, Plath, Jabesbut finally these are only assistants in an interior cinema of which Asekoff is the indisputable auteur.”

THE PLATONIC BLOW

J.T. Barbarese’s poems have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Boulevard, The Georgia Review, The Denver Quarterly, The Cortland Review, and Poetry, and in the anthology, The Italian-American Reader (Morrow, 2003). Every page of this book bears the thumbprint of J. T. Barbarese, a poet whose original slant—“to see the extraordinary / wither into life / and tell its story”—gives us the pleasures of his saying. A Very Small World provides durable rewards to its readers and rereaders.” –Daniel Hoffman

BRUCE BENNETT
$14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 1-932535-21-2
Bruce Bennett’s latest volume Subway Figure continues to explore, in a variety of forms, moods and modes, the intensities and vagaries of a self certain of little beyond its own existence.

FOOTNOTES TO AN UNFINISHED POEM
STEPHEN BERG
$12.95, 60 pages
ISBN 0-914061-82-8
Absolutely modernist in its conception, this remarkable book lets us glimpse a poem, “Here,” through the footnotes written about it. It tells a dramatic and exciting story “slant.” Allusive, learned, by turns ethereal and vulgar, Footnotes to an Unfinished Poem is Stephen Berg’s masterpiece.

FACING THE FACTS
LAURIE BLAUNER
$14.95, 79 pages
ISBN 0-914061-89-5
Tender and quietly assertive, Facing the Facts starts “in the small room of the heart” and makes that space an arena of connection and mystery that imposes itself unforgettably on the reader’s consciousness.

WUTHERING HEIGHTS
EMILY BRONTË
$100, per two volume set; 764 pages
ISBN 978-1932535-14-3. 

A facsimile of the rare and virtually unobtainable 1847 Thomas Cautley Newby edition of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights in two volumes, as issued in 1847. The set is bound in heavy, F grade buckram in sewn signatures. ISBN = 978-1932535-14-3. The price is $100 per set.

This is a textually significant book. Until 1976 all reprints of this novel were based on an 1850 version edited by Emily Bronte’s sister Charlotte. To accommodate the wishes of the firm then reprinting Wuthering Heights, Charlotte Brontë reparagraphed the novel, made what she felt were clarifications in dialogue, and repaired some of Newby’s typographical errors. While these alterations may be of interest in themselves, they deviate from the text that the author wrote. The closest text to Emily Brontë’s manuscript is this version.

WHAT MORE? 
DANIEL BROWN 
paperback, $14.95, 64 pages 
ISBN 1-932535-34-1 
High praise from Clive James: “My defenses against incoming poetry are formidable, but this weighty little book penetrated them without effort and went off in a ball of light. Brown gets much further than many of his generation because he can keep thinking while he laughs, and vice versa. I recommend What More? with a whole heart as one of the few modern books of poetry that has twice as much in it every time you read it, instead of half.”

CAMINO CIELO
CHRISTOPHER BUCKLEY
hardcover $21.95; pbk $12.95, 86 pages
hardcover ISBN 0-914061-58-5; paper ISBN 0-914061-59-3
Camino Cielo shimmers with the only life we can call real: that which memory and imagination interpret, impinge upon, and merge with the present. The vitality of these poems springs as much from Christopher Buckley’s understanding as from the surprising and tender aptness of his particulars: “ “simonized Chryslers and Oldsmobiles,” “the fluted columns at Persepolis,” and “dragonflies as iridescent as gasoline”offered so generously from the abundance of the “dreaming world” that it becomes also our own.

MICHAEL CASEY
$12.95, 72 pages
ISBN 0-914061-86-0
This is poetry written from the gutauthentic, vernacular, witty, unforgettable. Michael Casey’s first book, Obscenities, winner of the 1972 Yale Younger Poets Award, was one of the best selling collections of poetry of the 1970’s. The Million Dollar Hole is in that same tough tradition.

SAY WHEN
MARK CRAVER
paperback, $14.95, 72 pages
ISBN 1-932535-01-2
Lucie Brock-Broido wrote of Mark Craver’s last volume that Craver “left us the poetry of an engaged observer one who is wildly conscious of the authentic, and of the deeply human. He charm us with the manifestations of things and, like the Balladeers, Black Mountain Poets, and Beats before him, renders the quotidian world newly charged with the power of wit, self-deprecatory self-awareness, and an often ecstatic eye. As he puts it in one of the Dylan-like poems [in this book] ‘The concert is not over.’”

MARK CRAVER

THEY COME FOR WHAT YOU LOVE
MARK CRAVER
paperback $12.95, 64 pages
ISBN 0-914061-64-X
An abecedarian and other formal innovations mark these poems whose apparently rough surface conceals a delicacy of mind and sentiment that always surprises and delights.

AFTER THE SOLSTICE
FRED DINGS
$12.95, 64 pages
ISBN 0-914061-34-8
Richard Howard writes, “There is a distinct and honorable lineage, to which Mr. Dings has added a lovely note of his own, in our American poetry, a traceable bloodline from Whitman to James Wright, the constituted willingness to hold out the words, vessels of varying capacity, and to stand patiently until night fills them. Exultant rarely, elegiac readily, these new poems by Fred Dings seek a naturalized habitation of the selfno, for the self, and their search is the making of them: luminous, doleful, blessing.”

THE LATIN ODES OF JEAN DORAT
translated by DAVID R. SLAVITT
hardcover $20.00, 94 pages
ISBN 0-914061-80-1
Jean Dorat (1508-1588) was a member of the Pleiade group in France, a group that included such luminaries as Pierre de Ronsard and Joachim duBellay. However, because he wrote in Latin, his work has not been as widely read as theirs. This energetic, judicious selection of his poems, which includes two works in the original Latin, corrects that deficiency. David R. Slavitt’s elegant translations are poetic achievements in their own right.

KINKY
DENISE DUHAMEL
$12.95, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-61-5
“If there is a better young poet than Denise Duhamel in the USA, don’t tell me. I can’t take it, I can barely take her! Frank O’Hara said something about only 3 American poets being better than the movies, but I think Duhamel would make him add a 4th.”Bill Knott. Forty-six barbed and sparkling poems about one of America’s iconographic toysone which we all know and love.

WHAT SHE KNEW
PETER FILKINS
paperback $12.95, 64 pages
paperback: ISBN 0-914061-66-6
Richard Wilbur writes: “There are breathtaking phrases in this fine collection, as when a flock of symbolic geese rise from the earth in “a garland of distress that honks and shudders,’ or falling snow is seen as ’an intricate message/ about the reticence of winter.’ But in general, Peter Filkins’s work avoids bravura; it has a quieter virtuosity which makes the total evocation of a Brueghel look easy...and subtly blends, in many a poem, concrete description and flow and memory of ideas.”

PATTERNS OF DESCENT
RICHARD FOERSTER
hardcover $21.95; pbk $12.95, 96 pages
hardcover ISBN 0-914061-36-4; paper ISBN 0-914061-37-2
Explorations of the self that reach out into public experience, this second collection continues the deft artistry and measured grace of tone that characterized Richard Foerster’s first collection, Sudden Harbor.

SUDDEN HARBOR
RICHARD FOERSTER
$11.95, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-28-3
Michael Waters writes: “The true subject of Richard Foerster’s elegant and moving poems is the yearning that brim each soul that ’verges on becoming what it must.’ Sudden Harbor is exquisitely wrought, fluid with tenderness and memorable.”

hardcover: ISBN 0-914061-72-0

The resulting explosions of murder, betrayal, and revenge tighten the drama of Joe Fontana’s bold debut as one of the masters of the novel of international intrigue.

PSALMBOOK FOR THE WHITE BUTTERFLY
WRITING DOWN THE LIGHT
JAY BRADFORD FOWLER, JR.

Butterfly: ISBN 0-914061-03-8; Writing: ISBN 0-914061-05-4

THE YELLOW WALLPAPER
CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN
$2.00, 16 pages
ISBN 0-914061-16-X
This unforgettable tale of madness and repression, first published in The New England Magazine in January 1892, was praised by William Dean Howells as a tale to “chill the blood,” but it has also been viewed as a study in progressive madness, a text that destroys itself in the telling, and an early instance of feminist fiction.

NAMELESS BOY 
DOUGLAS GOETSCH 
paperback, $14.95, 96 pages 
ISBN 1-932535-31-0 
“Doug Goetsch possesses one of the most enviable gifts of poetry—the elasticity and warmth of a genuine human voice. The poems in Nameless Boy are worldly, funny, and self-reflective—all those companionable virtues. Goetsch’s monologues are so likeable that one might overlook their intense ethical coherence—that our guide is bargaining with the world on our behalf, trying to convince us that human nature deserves to be forgiven.” —Tony Hoagland

THE ALPHABET OF DESIRE
BARBARA HAMBY
$14.95, 103 pages
ISBN 1-932535-10-1
“Lusty, unselfconscious, musical, and fresh, these poems are about the ‘underground chaos packed tight inside everyone’ as we absorb the information daily cast down on us from satellites overhead . . . . ” –Library Journal

SONG OF THE MOON
JUDITH HARRIS
$3.50, 16 pages
ISBN 0-914061-00-3
A chapbook of subtly feminist poems that exemplify this poet’s ability to explore through alternative voices personae that speak for the many facets of the human spirit.

FAMILIAR GHOSTS
HENRY HART
paperback, $14.95, 96 pages
ISBN 9781932535297
Jay Parini writes, “Rarely do I find a book of poems so thoroughly engaging.  Familiar Ghosts gathers the work of a poet schooled deeply in the traditions of English and American poetry. He allows their rhythms and tones to deepen his own, finding new music in old forms, often allowing a wry personal note to emerge, as when he writes: “During my third mid-life crisis, I fell in love / with my great-grandfather’s ghost,” a love affair that prompts him to retrace his ancestor’s expedition through the Gobi Desert. And that is only one of many journeys undertaken here. A reader sweeps the planet in this poetry, which radiates at-home-ness in a haunted world, with nature revisited in many places, always with a keen eye for descriptions that become genuine revelations. Henry Hart is one of our finest contemporary poets, and this is one of those books you will keep and revisit, discovering fresh places to dwell with each rereading.”

NOTES ON GRAMMAR
DEE ANN HOLISKY
$49.95, 640 pages
hardcover ISBN 0-914061-31-3
A presentation of English grammar from the perspective of a linguist, Notes on Grammar is not a prescriptive handbook but rather a clarification of the ways in which grammar makes meaning and shapes expectation.

BELOW TWO SKIES
TIMOTHY HOUGHTON
$11.95, 80 pages
ISBN 0-914061-30-5
Roadside stands, a pileated woodpecker, plus memories of events past and present form the subject matter of these lyrical meditations that open into explorations of consciousness.

DROP LIGHT
TIMOTHY HOUGHTON
$14.95, 79 pages
ISBN 10932535-05-5

THE HEIGHT IN BETWEEN
TIMOTHY HOUGHTON
$18.95, 96 pages
ISBN 978-1-932535-26-6
A musical exploration of memory and loss set in the context of the spaces we inhabit, “a place to stretch the arms / with little resistance.” Houghton’s finest and most mature book, aching with desire perpetually just beyond human grasp.

RIDING UNTOUCHED
TIMOTHY HOUGHTON
hardcover $21.95, 80 pages
ISBN 0-914061-68-2
In Riding Untouched, Timothy Houghton expands the reach of his previous work, so that to the fine discrimination of Below Two Skies is added a consciousness of the scientific and geopolitical universe we all inhabit.

PARADISE FOR THE PORTUGUESE QUEEN
BENJAMIN IVRY
paperback $12.95, 80 pages
paperback: ISBN 0-914061-69-0
By turns satirical and intensely musical, Paradise for the Portuguese Queen is the first book of poems by a widely published poet and writer. Muriel Spark comments: “Deeply observant, Ivry is a lyrical intellectual. He experiences his reading and reads his experiences. At times he is reminiscent of Auden. The music of his verses is real and felt music.”

SILKY THEFTS
MICHAEL JENNINGS
paperback, $14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 1-932535-12-9
Silky Thefts is a story of deserts and gardens, place and displacement, love and loss, time and the timeless. It posits a morally complex, troubled world, yet one where beauty still abides and the authenticity of voice and experience remains a viability—one man’s record of travel, a song of the self. 

ULYSSES
JAMES JOYCE
hardcover $75.00
ISBN 0-914061-70-4
A reproduction of the first edition published in 1922 in Paris, in full size but in a hardcover, sewn binding, stamped to resemble the lettering on the paper covers done by Shakespeare and Company. After many attempts to produce an authoritative text, free of typographical error and embodying Joyce’s corrections, it seems that the experience of reading the book as it first appearedtypographical mistakes, bad type and allmost enables contemporary readers to experience Joyce’s masterpiece as its first excited readers did.

ENDANGERED SPECIES
FIELD STONES
ROBERT KINSLEY
Species: $5.95, 64 pages

$12.95, 80 pages
ISBN 0-914061-48-8
In this collection of some of the most startling and intelligent poetry being written these days, David Kirby uses the surreal and seemingly unrelated to make new connections.

I THINK I AM GOING TO CALL MY WIFE PARAGUAY
DAVID KIRBY
paperback $18.95, 202 pages
ISBN 0-914061-98-4
The essence of David Kirby—pithy instances, some never before in book form—of work by one of the most original poets writing today. “David Kirby has been writing very original and moving poems for at least twenty years, but this new book is his most daring and successful. The world that Kirby takes into his imagination and the one that arises from it merge to become a creation like no other, something like the world we inhabit but funnier and more full of wonder and terror. He has evolved a poetic vision that seems able to include anything, and when he lets it sweep him across the face of Europe and America, the results are astonishing.” –Philip Levine.

MY TWENTIETH CENTURY
DAVID KIRBY
$13.95, 128 pages
ISBN 0-914061-76-3
David Kirby’s voice is like no other. If Stevie Smith and Allen Ginsberg and Don DeLillo and Martin Scorsese had all been born in and then met again in Louisiana and started talking, the result would be something close. Compulsively readable, hysterically funny, moving, wise, and clever, this collection consists wholly of the “memory poems” that made Big-Leg Music one of the most outstanding and enjoyed books of 1995.

ISBN 1-932023-12-7
This is the Zoo Press edition of Randall Mann’s first collection, which Orchises continues to make available.

ISBN 9781932535303
Containing poems for young readers that will please adults, this collection is, in the words of Daniel Hoffman, “filled with love, humor, and the delights of motherhood.”

OVER THE SUMMER WATER
ELIZABETH McFARLAND
Preface by Daniel Hoffman
paperback, $14.95, 63 pages
ISBN 9781932535150
Elizabeth McFarland (1922-2005) brought poetry into the lives of millions. As poetry editor of The Ladies’ Home Journal from 1948 to 1961, she published new work by many noted poets and by the soon-to-be-famous young. Her own poems, which appeared there and elsewhere, embody purity of feeling in purity of diction and musical structure, and have the fingerprint of her individual style. They are gathered by her husband, Daniel Hoffman, whose preface illuminates their distinctive lyric virtues and her exceptional editorial career. About the collection itself, Rachel Hadas said, “I am intrigued by the wit that knows what to put in and what to leave out, and the curbed but no less strong sensuality.” Reading these poems “is like going back into a burnished world of spare, sculpted language, exquisite taste, and delicate suggestion.”

THE TAY  BRIDGE DISASTER AND OTHER POETIC GEMS
WILLIAM McGONAGALL
$12.95, 63 pages
ISBN 0-914061-84-4
These are some of the most inept poems ever written. Rhythmically clumsy, full of strained rhymes and misunderstood notions of prosody, their thought is banal in the extreme. McGonagall never met a cliche he didn’t like well enough to butcher. His work is so bad a kind of genius creeps into it. Loved by Ogden Nash, Dorothy Parker, and W. H. Auden, plus generations who have long since tired of Julia Moore and Edgar Guest, The Tay Bridge Disaster and Other Poetic Gems will appall and lift the spirit.

A CITIZEN’S HANDBOOK
LARRY MOFFI
$6.95, 48 pages

BELIEVE IT OR NOT
JEAN MONAHAN
$12.95, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-77-1
About this extraordinary collection, Vijay Sehsadri writes: ”Jean Monahan’s poems have a fine appetite for the world’s idiosyncrasiesfor the odd facts that illuminate the entire landscape of our inner lives; and their effortless lyricism gives her striking material a high and lustrous permanence. These poems are by turns tender and violent, ruefully intelligent and well-informed, and absolutely authentic.”

THE POTATO EATERS
LEONARD NATHAN
$12.95, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-75-5
Jonathan Holden called Nathan one of the fifteen most accomplished poets in America. Czeslaw Milosz writes, “Leonard Nathan seems to me one of the most interesting American poets...His poetry is warm, humane, and I find his voice deeply moving.” After a hiatus of a decade, Nathan emerges with his strongest collection yet. The Potato Eaters frames the felt world so intensely and palpably that every poem, while faithful to the circumstances that gave it birth, has the sudden force of icon.

RAGGED SONNETS
LEONARD NATHAN
$14.95, 96 pages
ISBN 978-1-932535-18-1
“This small volume holds for me the beginning and end of Leonard’s writing career,” writes the author’s widow, Carol Nathan. “I see these ‘Ragged Sonnets’ as his final word on form, content and memory.” They are in fact the last work from a poet whose words are revered by Jonathan Holden, Ted Kooser, and a growing number of discriminating readers.

RESTARTING THE WORLD
LEONARD NATHAN
$14.95, 96 pages
ISBN 1-932535-06-3
Ted Kooser writes: “For nearly fifty years, the distinguished American poet Leonard Nathan, without kowtowing to passing literary fashions, has steadily assembled a deeply moving and wide-ranging body of work.” This Nathan’s latest book, done at over eighty, with all the verve and freshness of one discovering the craft.

SUDDEN THAW
PEGGY O’BRIEN
$14.95, 96 pages
ISBN 0-914061-99-2
”Peggy O’Brien’s first book,” writes Michael Longley, “opens with a taut sonnet sequence that laments her father, and closes with an intrepid examination of what she calls ‘the gauze of mother daughter / Love, that knit of wills.’ Between these impressive and affecting suites she treats us to a many-angled account of her discovery of herself as an artist. There’s anger and agitation, sorrow and grievance in these poems, but also an erotic tinge, humour and delight.”

TRUSTING ICE 
PEGGY O’BRIEN 
paperback, $14.95, 96 pages 
ISBN 1-932535-33-4 
J. D. McClatchy writes: “Peggy O’Brien’s imagination is both sumptuous and skeptical. For every lustrous description there is a pang as it disappoints or dissipates. The poems in her third collection, Trusting Ice, are smart and sympathetic, rich and surprising. You read them and the skies clear.”

FULL NOVA
CALEY O’DWYER
$12.95, 80 pages
ISBN 0-914061-85-2
Thomas Lux writes: “Caley O’Dwyer writes at an odd and wonderful angle. He not only tells the truth slant but also shines a playful, deadly serious, and singular light on it too. This is a terrific first book by a young poet on fire with his art.”

ISBN 0-914061-41-9

DOLLS
JOHN POCH
hardcover $21.95, 62 pages
hardcover ISBN 978-1-932535-20-4
H. L. Hix writes about Dolls, “The speaker in one of John Poch’s poems reports, ‘I’m carried where I will not wish.’  As which of us is not?  So are we humans all doll-like. Yet in Poch’s Dolls the prevailing response to being subject to something larger than oneself is not fatalism or passivity but awe, a bearing witness to ‘the orange prisms of dew / dropping from the tips of spearmint leaves / touched by the small breeze cleansing this place.’”

POEMS
JOHN POCH
$14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 1-932535-00-4
B. H. Fairchild writes: “With the kind of appetite for language that Glenn Gould had for the sculptured lines of Bach and Schoenberg, John Poch with this book announces his presence among a group of younger poets who, contrary to current literary fashion, are rediscovering the interior life of poetic language and the powers of what Eliot called the auditory imagination. Stunningly articulate, Poch ranges within a wide repertoire of forms and meters—orthodox and experimental—and like Gould, he has the head and hands for it. Read, listen, enjoy.”

THE BRIGHTER THE VEIL

$12.95, 80 pages

THE CLOCK MADE OF CONFETTI
MICHAEL SALCMAN
paperback, $14.95, 104 pages
ISBN 1-932535-11-2
About this stunning collection Thomas Lux said: “This is a long awaited collection. Michael Salcman is a poet of enormous range and passions—from painting to neurosurgery. What I love most about his poems is the figurative microscope he builds into each poem so the reader can see it all: focused, alter, alive.”

THE ENEMY OF GOOD IS BETTER
MICHAEL SALCMAN
paperback, $14.95, 96ages
ISBN 1-932535-24-2
The sixty-five poems in this collection demonstrate again Michael Salcman’s formal mastery as a poet, his wide range of interests, all seen in depth, and his loving fascination with life in all its manifestations. Leavened with humor and sweetness, the vision is grim, but fortifyingly so, as honesty and responsive depth demand.

THE IDEA OF THE ORDINARY
CARMINE SARRACINO
$14.95, 88 pages
ISBN 0-914061-97-6
Daniel Hoffman writes: “Carmine Sarracino’s The Idea of the Ordinary reveals a Whitman-like openness to the details of life in poems that range from the acculturation of his Italian-America family to his imagining Kafka in Berlin. These poems have the momentum of their narrative strength, yet are infused with a delicate lyricism. This is an impressive book by a poet well worth watching.”

UNFLUX
TIMOTHY SHEA
$12.95, 79 pages
ISBN 0-914061-83-6
An extraordinary collection, absolutely itself and unlike anything else you have read. Elliptical, half language poetry, half religious meditation, with surprising connections, and an astonishing and intense originality. And it’s all earned.

HIEROGLYPHICS IN NEON
SUE WILLIAM SILVERMAN
$14.95, 71 pages
ISBN 1-932535-09-8
“Sue William Silverman’s collection is a bracing debut—rangy, restless, and giddy with lush particulars. Geography and memory fuse into a single landscape, encompassing everything from the West Indies to the Negev, Yucatan to the Jersey Shore. It is rare to encounter a first book of poetry so willing to embrace the incantatory powers of the language¸ or so capable of using them to map the self .” — David Wojahn . Sue William Silverman’s first memoir, Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You, won the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Award Series in creative nonfiction and is published with the University of Georgia Press.  Her second memoir is Love Sick: One Woman’s Journey Through Sexual Addiction (W. W. Norton). This is her first collection of poetry.

DEATHS THAT TRAVEL WITH THE WEATHER
LOUIE SKIPPER
hardcover $25.00; pbk $10.00, 64 pages
hardcover ISBN 0-914061-29-1; paper ISBN 0-914061-24-0
A narrative book-length poem whose immediate subject is growing up in the rural South whose somber tone is relieved by flashes of craziness that once again turn the poem in upon itself. Even as it moves through territory immediately familiar to aficionados, Louie Skipper’s work has a voice and rhythm all its own.

LOGICIAN OF THE WIND
LEE SLONIMSKY
paperback, $14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 978-1-932535-27-7
Neither a versified History Channel account of Pythagoras nor science cookie-cuttered into sonnets, Logician of the Wind builds thematically rather than chronologically, while also resting in the timeless beauty of its forms. This book is a pleasure to read straight through; yet any one poem rewards lingering over. Atoms, trees, birds, water, wind—Lee Slonimsky celebrates the macro and micro of the phenomenal world. Van Courtlandt Park and South Jersey make friendly appearances; the lyric imagination of Logician of the Wind is both local and global, both atomic and cosmic. A remarkable achievement. —Rachel Hadas

PYTHAGORAS IN LOVE
LEE SLONIMSKY
paperback, $14.95, 64 pages
ISBN 1-932535-13-6
X. J. Kennedy writes: “Although it is said that there’s poetry in mathematics, Lee Slonimsky is among those rare poets who bring the history of mathematics into poetry.  In ‘The Last Digit of Pi’ and other fine sonnets, Slonimsky discovers startling mathematical metaphors in the natural world.  His work strikes me as unique in current American poetry.”

Edward Hirsch writes: “Elaine Terranova identifies those times when something goes wrong, when things break down, and she illuminates them with a warmly sympathetic imagination. The Dog’s Heart—her best book thus far—is a work that flashes with moments and flares with memories, that burns with a steady human light.”

PROPER MYTH
WILLIAM F. VAN WERT
paperback $12.95, 64 pages
paperback: ISBN 0-914061-67-4
Classical myth informs the shape of contemporary life in these shrewd and controversial meditations on human relationships. “From the painful force of Dido’s long meditation through the author’s own consciousness of myth’s meaning, Van Wert examines the history of the race, women with men, foremost, from a feminist perspective properly and often in these poems, improperly as well. Once again, his heady poetry seems infinitely various in its tones and complexities. Once again, Van Wert is as rich as his sources.”

OARLESS BOATS, VACANT LOTS

EXIT ISLAND
TERRI WITEK, with images by Cyriaco Lopes
$18.95, 112 pages
ISBN 978-1-932535-25-9
Terri Witek’s Exit Island is a book of voyages, both terrestrial and temporal—explorationsmythical and poetic. The reigning deities are Ariadne and Fernando Pessoa, and in verse lyrical and experimental Witek creates a world filled with snake handlers, sea nymphs, sea chants, and mutinies. Hold on, dear reader. This is a book like no other, a swirling microcosm of the tragic and playful, of betrayal and deep and abiding love.  —Barbara Hamby

FOOLS AND CROWS
TERRI WITEK
$14.95, 79 pages
ISBN 0-914061-94-1
Terri Witek’s Fools and Crows takes the ancient discipline of ekphrasis—a poet’s description of a work of art-to a new level of intensity. In her explorations of Renaissance paintings, of Roman Catholic holy cards, of the Vision of Our Lady of Fatima, the poet locates the matter and spirit of the human condition, our desires to connect, to worship, to elude death. These lyric unveilings and expositions recall the beautiful exactitudes of Marianne Moore’s poetry. They are the elucidations of a luminous intelligence, shadowed by grief and joy. —Mark Jarman

THE SHIPWRECK DRESS
TERRI WITEK
paperback, $14.95, 96 pages
ISBN 1-932535-17-4
About Terri Witek’s third volume of poetry Molly Peacock said, “With the brilliant certainty of her intuition, Terri Witek spins the silken sculptures of her new collection, The Shipwreck Dress. I never thought of the soul as needing something to wear, but Witek has created a kind of soul-clothing in these miraculous poems. Internal, instinctive, and yet knowingly crafted, every poem renews another aspect of her idea that the outer wrappings we know as clothing are really inner structures. As Witek sensuously explores the most ancient connections between text and textile, she turns her poems into stunning, subtle word-kimonos. Vivid with color, deeply sensuous, and sharply intelligent, The Shipwreck Dress shows Terri Witek at the height of her powers.” The cover features art by Cyriaco Lopes.

THE APPARITIONERS
GEORGE WITTE
$19.50, 104 pages, hardcover
ISBN 978-0-976047-01-8
“Witte’s interest in casual American speech...suggest Robert Frost, while the austerity of his diction, and his more than passing interest in mortality, imply lessons learned from Anthony Hecht. His search for human lesson in gardens and fields, and his attraction to green retreats, even suggests Frost’s sometime model Horace, who propounded wisdom from his Sabine farm.” —Publishers Weekly

DENIABILITY
GEORGE WITTE
$14.95, 91 pages
ISBN 978-1-932535-19-8
The poems in Deniability utilize the vocabularies of bureaucracy and religion, exploring how the former co-opts the ancient latter, to such consequential effect. With wit and formal acuity balanced by emotion, Deniability considers what we lose when we abdicate the power of language, and so surrender to the seductive language of power. 

THE HURTLING
JOHN WITTE
$14.95, 77 pages
ISBN 1-932535-03-9
“Fierce, controlled, inventive, forward-rushing, refusing punctuation to make free with syntax, John Witte’s cycle of severely unrepetitive thee-line stanza pomes left me with endless questions and durable satisfaction. There are poems here—‘As If’ is one—which I will never forget.” – Ursula K. LeGuin.
