A book of extraordinary poems on musical themes by our editorial board member and regular blogger, Marc Jampole.
“Mr. Jampole is absolutely unique in the way he expresses his material, especially in regard to sound, meter and rhythm.” –-Michael Wurster, Small Press Review
“Here is a poet of tremendous range, whose subjects occupy the span between Audubon’s bird paintings and a suffocated Moses in the suburbs…Jampole’s poems really sing, remarkably in a diverse chorus of registers, often with affection and humor.” –-Janlori Goldman, Jewish Currents
“The poems are densely cerebral, the product of extensive reading, and language-crammed. There are echoes of Hopkins' mouth-filling sprung rhythm, Stevens' vibrant wordplay and Pound's obsurantist intertextuality.” --Adam Sobsey, Indy Week
“A good read for adults who want to put their thinking caps on.” –-Pam Rosenblatt, Wilderness House Review
“This book is amazing.” –-Gloria Mindock, editor, Cervena Barva Press
