Poetry. "The poems in MOVING BLANKET seem to measure the nearly imperceptible moment in which consciousness becomes aware of itself as language. Elusive yet vivid, they ride on subtle mild currents that can turn unexpectedly into eddies of grace or passion. In the end, we have been on a journey without destination, other than the unfurling of an intimacy between a poet and his world: 'I sit on our bench again / Things are happening around me'"—Ann Lauterbach. "Of all the exciting linguistic effects of Kostas Anagnopoulos's poems—line-by-line shifts in perspective and perception, familiar phrases reconfigured—the most remarkable is ultimately the emerging voice—'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPOULOS'—of the lively and original poet himself"—Paul Violi.
