Poetry. "There is a relentless generosity to Joseph Donahue's newest collection, as seemingly everything can find its place among the contours of his poetry. By turns worldly and visionary, RED FLASH ON A BLACK FIELD accomodates Charles Olson and David Lynch, Nietzsche, and a theology bursting from pure, luminous words of radical intent. In the hands of this consummate craftsman, 'consciousness is a continual fire,' and the world of words is ablaze."—Susan Howe
