Joanne Kyger


This number of Joanne Kyger's paintings unearths her as one of many significant experimenters, hybridizers, and visionaries of poetry. Kyger is a poet of position, with a powerful voice-delicate, sleek, and not wasteful; her poems discover issues of friendship, love, neighborhood, and morality and draw on local American fable in addition to Asian faith and philosophy.

Edited with a foreword via Michael Rothenberg, and with an creation by means of poet David Meltzer, this publication is a wonderful evaluate of a superbly difficult and significant poet.
