RASCIBLE & KEMPT, vol. 3, by Jim Leftwich

rascible & kempt: meditations and explorations in and around the poem Vol. 3

JIM LEFTWICH

256 PP., $20

 


 

This 3rd volume of Jim Leftwich's unique and ground-breaking examination of the explosion of marginal literatures can also be seen, like the first 2, as an example of that literature. It has an enormous variety of approaches to language-based arts that are ignored by the academies, the publishers, and the cliques that make up the dominant worlds of letters today. This exciting art, of which Leftwich is also a practitioner, is what will shape the literary world of the future, and his documentation of it is, and will be, of immense value. He takes on this extraordinary material in extensive real and imagined conversations, exhaustive discussions and contextualizations, detailed analyses, bibliographic documentation, and other approaches difficult to categorize, because the categories for it do not yet exist. These 3 essential books open a portal to a world of major literary creation, a world that is, for the moment, largely invisible.

- John M. Bennett

 

Future Prometheans, Rascible & Kempt is as much a training manual as it is a mechanism to reignite the fires of poetry.

- Michael Peters

THE WORLD OF BURNING by John M. Bennett

 

THE WORLD OF BURNING

John M. Bennett

John M. Bennett's poetry encapsulates the chaos characterizing our experience of and in this world, giving it a form and presence in words, phonemes, languages, and metaphor so compact and multi-meaningful, so ambiguous, that his poems glitter in their condensed expressive emotionality. The result is a universe that is gritty, carnal, and at the same time metaphysical and sublime, resonating in multiple worlds, cultures, times, and consciousnesses. Bennett does not “write poetry”, but uses poetry as a means of understanding and creating what cannot be understood and what cannot exist, but does very much exist in these pages. In the over 50 years of his writing, he has published more than 400 books and chapbooks, each quite different, yet distinctly Bennett, and has developed a startling variety of innovative techniques and approaches. His Select Poems appeared in 2016.

 

"I believe that the broom closet is where John M. Bennet's words hide. Bennet's language, immersed in buckets of wetness, emerge from the closet, carried by Fantasia's Micky Wizard's brooms in intense exponential rigor. They spill as poetry, endlessly over the edge and down the stairs of the effervescent fountains of life's dark and mysterious castles."

LA INTERRUPCIÓN CONVERSACIONAL by Ivan Argüelles

Ivan Argüelles

LA INTERRUPCIÓN CONVERSACIONAL

$15.00

ISBN 978-1-938521-30-0

 

If proof were needed that Surrealism is a spontaneous expression of the poetic mind, Ivan Argüelles would be the one to provide it. In the tradition of the madder, darker, and more mystical Surrealists like René Crevel and Antonin Artaud, Argüelles weaves his mad web of images out of an impossible depth. Unlike the more superficial image makers who lay claim to the Surrealist label out of sheer laziness or because “it looks easy”, Argüelles is genuine. - Andrei Codrescu. LA INTERRUPCIÓN CONVERSACIONAL is a whirl, a while, a whirlwind of words that upends the petty poetries that fill the zines and bore even their practitioners. It is simultaneously a tip of the chapeau to the great practitioners—Pound, Joyce, Burroughs—and a wild announcement that there's something more to say. It is pure Argüelles, shot through with the impurities of passion, the unread Classics, and all sorts of exotic foreign literatures and cultures. -Jack Foley.
