Poetry. THE STRUGGLERS is Norman Fischer's fourth book of poetry with Singing Horse Press. Divided into six poetic sequences, "Norman Fischer's new poems—including a rhetorically stunning series after Mandelstam—make you stop and think—about everyday life and its sampled commodifications—about global turbulence and local pleasure. These poems create a path for reflection as a means for intensified sensation and transformation. 'No end to ending, no beginning to beginning, no beginning to ending, no ending to beginning.' Start here now."—Charles Bernstein
