Product Description: Benjamin Fondane was that rarest of poets: an experimental formalist with a powerful lyric poetic voice; a renegade surrealist who was also a highly original existential philosopher; a self-consciously Jewish poet  of diaspora and loss, whose last manuscripts made it out of Drancy in 1944 just before his deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where he was murdered, yet whose poetry speaks of an overflowing plenitude...read more

Product Description: Poetry. "Leonard Schwartz follows a swarm of 'ifs' that lead through a series of hypotheses to a subjunctive space where hope and doubt lovingly and painfully intertwine. Here, we are shown how 'a thing seen is a journey in itself' whether that thing is the spot 'where beavers come out,' or a coffee mug bearing an emblem of a lake...read more

Product Description: Poetry. "As Schwartz posits in his introduction, true nature poetry is not that which stands outside nature and addresses it, but that which recognizes that we speak, always and inevitably, from within it. Acting upon this insight, he has created a nature poetry that upends all previous understandings of the term through an engagement with language that underscores it as an act of nature...read more

Product Description: Poetry. "Between what's perceived and how one adds meaning spells a moment of infinite duration, an admixture of sense and thinking, of mirror-clear images and impressionistic language.

Product Description: Poetry. "Sometimes an artist's work distills into its purest concentrate. Such is the case in Leonard Schwartz's magnificent new collection, EAR AND ETHOS. At the heart of these often witty poems is a fierce protest of 'the Occupation' ('Am I at home or in exile? All of us are living in Baghdad now' ['War Poem']), but there is also a tender, brilliant music: 'Born of a love with no past / a city speaks within us / in unexpected journeys, / wine-dark dictionaries / foaming with words and opacities' (these lines from the tour de force central long poem, 'Six Ways Two Places At Once')...read more

Product Description: Poetry. "When a (young) Empire for the first time suffers invasion, hurt, pain, a casting off of symbols, trauma before the closing of ranks, vessels, values, there is also a reconsideration—at best a reconstitution—of the very tissues of language as if the culture has to learn how to speak all over again, to see itself—if lucky—fresh...read more
