Stanley Nelson explores the range of poetic form.
He utilises a traditional sonnet format in one section and an open, non-linear format, in which he not only breaks up words, but separates syllables and letters in another. The poems expand across the page. This book offers a mix of visual and auditory imagery, creating an alternative universe.
“This is the most radical opening up of poetic form since Walt Whitman’s Leaves Of Grass. Stanley Nelson is one of those defining figures, one of those who defines an age, not only for his contemporaries, but for posterity.” –Guy Gauthier
“Stanley Nelson’s poems are a poetic bridge between the ancient thunder of Sumerian bulls and the dysfunctional fragmentation of the present world. His encyclopedic mind and ingenious verse make ancient times instantly relevant to the trauma of today.” –Leslie H. Whitten Jr.
“Nelson is a writer whose rapture is deeply imbedded in his craft. This volume is an intense, and at times, a very entertaining read.”-Rattlesnake Review
“Stanley Nelson may be the best poet you’ve never heard of. This is a poetry of elementals.” –Alan Catlin
