One of 2,000 copies issued in cloth, with metallic green foil illustration stamped on front cover, and illustrated endpapers. 84 pages. NEW."Those of us who have seen only a few of Bill Anthony drawings will never forget them, tart little comments on this or that sacred cow in a scraggly style instantly recognizable as his. But when these single drawings are all accumulated, categorized, and anthologized, as I'm happy to say they are here, a delirious new empire is born, with Bill Anthony's odd little flags staked out in the most expansive territories, giddily ranging from Hitler to Busby Berkeley, from Manet to the Pollock-Krasner menage, from dopey teen-age sex in America to bank robberies in the Wild West." -Robert Rosenbaum

Description:
Jargon 107. Narrative poetry told from inside a Mexican jail during 1962 and 1963. Bound in black cloth with yellow spine label. Jacket photographs of mummies from the Church of Guanajuato, Mexico by Ron Nameth. NEW in publisher's mylar."These poems are narrative and multivocal; they could be radiophonic, but varied strophic forms (pulses) give them a solidly textual aspect. A main voice relays in solos an ensemble of other voices. All the voices are telling stories, while the main voice vividly complicates the threads of story into clusters of hallucinatory images. Narrative line and imaginative volume, alternating in a zigzag antiphony, disclose the essential scene: a Mexican jail. From it the actual world outside is only glimpsed on occasion: but in it the voices--Spanish, Anglo, or hybrid--are constantly rising fresh 'cells' open to startle their hardbitten denizens out: words or convicts. Not a phrase in this grim, precisely featured, colorful De Profundis falls back on literary props or poetic… Read More

"About Genoa (Jargon 43), Metcalf remarked in passing: 'I have written a wicked book, etc., etc., etc.' With The Middle Passage, we need a blurb saying: 'I have written a dark book, etc., etc.' And what a coal-hole! An unbearable blackness at times: he makes it possible by keeping the beat. The time he takes taps out the passion & dispassion of the textbook and the poem as they submit one to the other in turn. That hope--the old cliche commands us to abandon when entering such places--moves like a virus all throughout this, The Middle Passage." -Thomas Meyer
