"Charles Fort rises above the regional and the racial to where true freedom resides—in the core of the imagination."—ET Malone, Jr.
Fort's two previous books in the trilogy appeared in 1993 and 2001: Darvil, and Frankenstein Was A Negro. One can hear the webbed footsteps of Darvil on the streets of Paris close behind the broken walking sticks thrown down by Baudelaire, Rimbaud, and Verlaine. The Darvil Nightmares may end.

Mostly new to me, though with a few old and welcome friends, these poems are perfect examples of what I love about prose poems. So easily approachable in how laid back they seem in form, you don't easily notice the complexity that can be there. They just lay down the line at the same time that they deliver intense evocation, amazing images, and a heated current of pleasure that's almost physical. Spoken music, wonderful poems.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
