REVIEW FOR BASIL KING


Basil King's latest Marsh Hawk Press book, HISTORY NOW, is reviewed by Eileen Tabios in Galatea Resurrects!  You can see the review HERE, but here's an excerpt:
The blurber Ammiel Alcalay (aptly) says about History Now that the book presents “the perspective of someone who has been trained not just to look but to see, and not to miss anything in his field of vision.” I agree, but I’d expand that to say that King doesn’t just see everything (in his field of vision) but he wants to see everything. Surely what King has accomplished in this book (as well as his other accomplishments as both writer and a visual artist) would not have been possible without such an immense desire.

Celebrating the publication of:
PATRICIA CARLINSecond Nature
"Visionary, honed, distilled, charged with the immediacy of a dream before you coax it into a story and the challenges of our baffling history, Carlin's poems remind me- entirely on their own terms- of the intimate 'you must change your life' urgency of the Duino Elegies." -D. Nurkse
BASIL KING: History Now
"'Perspective' is what King brings to his vivid, hybrid writing. It is the perspective of someone who has been trained not just to look but to SEE... King's work always yields what his old now departed friend Amiri Baraka called'emotional validity.'" -Ammiel Alcalay
BURT KIMMELMAN: Abandoned Angel
"By way of a precise and pared-down language these poems artfully render a physical world while simultaneously serving as objects to be engaged for the contemplation of such a world... what might at first seem to be simple narrative progressions can often startlingly make manifest deeply heartfelt human illuminations."-Hugh Seidman

EDWARD FOSTER: Sowing the Wind
"As a writer, critic, editor, and teacher, Ed Foster is inveterately Apollonian: lucid, balanced, well organized." -American Book Review
