    Through a dizzying array of references to subjects ranging from engineering to poetry, on-the-job experiences in academia and industry, conflicts between working-class and intellectual labor, the privatization of universities, and the contradictions of the modern environment, Joe Amato?s Industrial Poetics mounts a boisterous call for poetry communities... more...

    Erwin Messmers neue Gedichte überraschen immer wieder. Nicht nur Leserinnen und Leser. Auch seine Wörter werden von ihm laufend überrascht, indem er sie quasi auf dem Fuss ertappt in ihrer Mehrdeutigkeit, in ihren semantischen Möglichkeiten: Er fegt sie blank vom Staub des Alltagsgeplappers, nimmt sie beim Wort, stellt sie in ungeahnte Zusammenhänge... more...

  • The Figure of the Singerby Daniel Karlin
