The Tenor on Horseback: Poems by Christopher Middleton

Following Tankard Cat (The Anti-Basilisk), the encrypted story this time is of thought desirous of levitation gradually crashing. The poems are, for the most part, addressed to facts. Diverse, sometimes prosaic, they also address desolation thrust upon us by atrocious facts-negatives that assault arduously civilized life. Yet some poems are not so shadowed. Among organizing figures the ship recurs, in its element, with extensions, e.g., the river, as in the verbatim (thus also factual) found poem 'Felo de se'. Whether or not "audiences" catch their auditory features, there exists a growing body of readers who remember and cherish Christopher Middleton's poems.
