...arrived a while back. The books are gorgeous. Last week I read the introductions by Shane Neilson. The introduction to Now That You Revive addresses the criticism of Moritz's work that came following the publication of Night Street Repairs. As I read, I recalled the hot exchanges on Bookninja regarding the reviews by David Solway and Carmine Starnino. By the end of the introduction, I felt anxious on behalf of the poems. Please be good, please be good, I kept thinking. I read a few, but couldn't shake the tension, so I decided to put the book aside for a while and let the introduction fade a bit.
The broadsheet is gorgeous, too. The blurb on the site says ""Achromatope" is arguably one of the best poems Zach has written."
I have to agree. It's a mighty fine poem.
