Poetry. "Word to the wise: read this love letter to what language can do for you. M. Magnus' VERB SAP taps the very blood of language--the textures here get at the many-fingered roots, the 'crossweave fabric' of rhizomatic namings that thrust ever outward, always 'by way of a word' here, the 'Elfic D'oracle' signifies how a 'single word can change your life'"--Lee Ann Brown.
Magus Magnus is the author of THE RE-ECHOES (Furniture Press Books, 2012), IDYLLS FOR A BARE STAGE (twentythreebooks, 2011), HERACLITEAN PRIDE (Furniture Press Books, 2010), and VERB SAP (Narrow House, 2008). Two poems from VERB SAP—"Radical Crumb" and "Empirical/Imperial Demonstration"—appear in the 10th edition of Pearson Longman's English anthology textbook, Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing.
