Description

Free Verse Editions, Edited by Jon Thompson | “While the poems in this alert collection rarely depend on specific geography, there is a strong sense of somewhere here. These poems catch the mind in the process of thinking and plot the subtle constellations that arise from the intersection between the actual and the imaginary. Shades and tones and moods are evoked, as we might find in the paintings many of these poems reference. And yet, there are quiet echoes of our real world of human endeavor to provide a sense that something’s out-of-whack as well as the sense there’s something vital to hope for. This is a deeply satisfying book.” —Maurice Manning

“While the poems in this alert collection rarely depend on speciîc geography, there is a strong sense of somewhere here. These poems catch the mind in the process of thinking and plot the subtle constellations that arise from the intersection between the actual and the imaginary. Shades and tones and moods are evoked, as we might înd in the paintings many of these poems reference. And yet, there are quiet echoes of our real world of human endeavor to provide a sense that something’s out-of-whack as well as the sense there’s something vital to hope for. This is a deeply satisfying book.” —Maurice Manning
“An abstracted yet intensely material apocalyptic hope stalks L. S. Klatt’s SUNSHINE WOUND, whose lyrics possess the eerie, chimerical power of skeuomorphs. Vestiges of patriotism, religious ardor, d(e)volution, astronomy, visual art, indexical obsession, classical philosophy, and Westward expansion are conated with synthetic or surreally altered manifestations of the same, and the result is an eerily prescient articulation of the individual in America—our history, artiîce, moxie, anxiety, and faith—in all its dizzying twenty-îrst-century velocity.”
—Lisa Russ Spaar
“This beautiful collection of lyric poems shimmers with dream-like transformations and the kind of inspiring freedom one înds in the notebooks of Sigmar Polke and the journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Klatt invites us into a world that, like our recollections of childhood, is strange and a bit menacing, but suused with an undeînable aura of possibility. . . . Klatt understands that the poet must build a Rube Goldberg apparatus to set the strange music of delight back in motion. I loved this book.” —Georey Nutter
