Poetry. The eighth title in a long awaited series of poetry books representing the life's work of Douglas Blazek.
"Douglas Blazek's net is so broad, his inventiveness so bounding, his marriage of idiosyncrasy and universality so purely astonishing, it leaves the reader more than a little breathless to a book's worth at once. But that's the vertigo we want from poems."—Jane Hirshfield
Achieving prominence in his first 25 years, Douglas Blazek became known as an instrumental figure in the sixties literary movement, the Mimeo Revolution: publishing poems in over 500 journals, authoring several dozen books and chapbooks, editing the infamous journal Olé—publishing key works by Charles Bukowski and da. Levy, and vowing to "make poetry dangerous." Several years later, reaching what he felt was his limit, Blazek backed away from these accomplishments to write new poetry and meticulously revise his existing material for the three decades that followed. The series of books now being published by Edition Muta represents the complete life's work of Douglas Blazek.Author City: SACRAMENTO, CA USA
