Poetry. In a kaleidoscope of voices, Alan Halsey recreates the tellings and retellings surrounding the poet Shelley's drowning. THE TEXT OF SHELLEY'S DEATH is a collage prose-poem, a biographical and critical study, a mystery. "Halsey acts on objectified language by jerking it out of an old, established order, to reveal its other hidden facets and strands"--Tim Woods. This is a limited edition from Five Seasons Press, signed by the author.
