A new edition of Ronald Johnson’s masterpiece
forthcoming in Fall of 2013
“ARK is a metaphysical poem that could only have been written in our time, of which it displays a new vision. It is a late harvest of seeds sown by Blake, L. Frank Baum, the Bible, and Zukofsky, all in a new architecture, a wholly new voice, and even a new chemistry of words and images. It is for those who can see visions, and for those who know how to look well and be taught that they can see them.” Guy Davenport

Now Available: To Anacreon in Heaven and Other Poems by Graham Foust
Flood Editions ISBN 978-0-9838893-5-9 $15.95
“In To Anacreon in Heaven and Other Poems, Foust has written a gorgeously subversive field guide to the inner life, the poet’s life—an anthem, if you will, to a borderless country, unbound from assumption. Brace yourself for the shock of recognition.” —Dawn Raffel
On A Mouth in California: “Since so much of Foust’s work is a declaration of what he likes, embraces, and wants to incorporate into his corpus—that is, his body—these poems instruct the reader to become what you like so you can like what you are. And they mark Foust as one of the best erotic poets writing now.” —Ange Mlinko in The Nation
Also available from Small Press Distribution or through independent bookstores.

The new issue of Chicago Review includes a thoughtful review by John Beer of William Fuller’s Hallucination. The review concludes, “‘Glancing back / without remembering’ runs the final couplet of ‘The Elixir,’ and this might serve in its own way as a credo of Fuller’s poetics, with its prismatic evocations of the literary past and its seeming resolute refusal to generate totalities. . . . In ‘The Circuit,’ the prose poem mashing Zeno with Kafka that closes the volume, a hapless office worker bears a report that slowly grows to the size of a planet, even as it remains stubbornly unreadable. If the observing narrator has turned away from that unedifying spectacle to bear his own report, it’s one that, for all its extraterrestrial gravity, remains compelling and compulsively readable—and human-sized.” Read the full review here, and purchase the issue to read poems by Merrill Gilfillan and an interview with him, as well as translations by John Tipton and Andrew Joron.
