I’d like to announce the publication of my new book, Phenomenal Reading: Essays in Modern and Contemporary Poetics. It’s available now from the University of Alabama Press in paperback. Winner of the press’s Elizabeth Agee Prize for outstanding American literary scholarship, the book reprints eleven previously published essays on figures such as Carl Sandburg, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Robert Duncan, John Ashbery, Reginald Shepherd, and Rosmarie Waldrop. There is also a new twelfth chapter (on abecedaries!) and an original preface. Fun for all!
