The Rapture of Eddy Daemon, a New Collection by Daniel Y. Harris



Finally: a posthuman translation of Shakespeare. I'm glad Daniel Y. Harris beat Watson at it. There are still large chunks of human in his kind lineation."
—Andrei Codrescu, author of Bibliodeath: My Archives (with Life in Footnotes), (Antibookclub, 2012)



Though last words are rarely included in blurbs, Jack Spicer’s “My vocabulary did this to me” is apt praise for Daniel Y. Harris’ linguistic tour de force, The Rapture of Eddy Daemon, which is a procedural and meta-linguistic commentary on Shakespeare’s sonnets and so much more—from Faustian saga of human creation to an ode to the mechanical and posthuman methods of gaining access once again to the imagination. The circle/cycle is unbroken and broken simultaneously—and that is the joy of this big, ambitious, and brilliant riff on what “revision,” at its most exuberant boundary can mean. Read this forever and then start again.

David Madgalene Tells It Like It Is
This fine letter was written by Sonoma County, California poet David Madgalene and eloquently describes what poets know and do.  Enjoy!

Poetry in the Veins

Regarding David Templeton's "Power of Poetry" (July 13): Perhaps someone should remind Templeton that poetry is truth, not "beautiful words" as he describes. That a poet spends his or her entire lifetime, 365 days a year, 24/7, transforming their lives, their loves and their world, as Rainer Maria Rilke writes, into the very blood that flows through their bodies, from which they might distill its essence in a few good lines of "blood-remembering"—that is poetry.

Pat Nolan's Ted Berrigan Dream

  Ted shook my hand and sent me off to the reading.  He wanted to be alone with
Alice who would be home any minute. I kept wondering:but who is this woman. Fire
escapes clung to the bricks as I kicked the litter of the tenement streets. I had the
map Ted had drawn to take me to the reading. Like Ted's poems, the map took me
everywhere but to where I expected. And New Jersey.  
(from The New Censorship - January 1993)
