Poetry. Richard Blevins, well known as a publisher (of Zelot Press/Clarel Editions) and as an editor (of the Olson-Creeley correspondence), is also the author of numerous books and chapbooks (including CLAREL'S MOTEL and THE COLLECTED LATER POEMS OF PHILIP MARLOWE, both still available from SPD). This selection spans more than 25 years in the career of a writer noted for his quick psychological discrimination and scatter...The work becomes a luminated graph of sentience across space, a body of prior observations, pulled to focus in the present case (Edward Dorn). Along the way, Blevins finds inspiration in Blaise Cendrars, Robert Duncan, Ezra Pound, Jimi Hendrix, and the landscape of the American Plains. With a foreword by Stephen Ellis.
