Eric Pankey, Dismantling the Angel

2012 New Measure Poetry Prize Winner
Selected by Jon Thompson

Dismantling the Angel, Eric Pankey’s tenth volume of poetry, collects prose and hybrid poems written over the last two decades. At times god-ridden, the poems enact and subvert the form of the parable, the not-so-good news of the gospel. At times whimsical, the poems question the veracity and stability of the autobiographical I. Always speculative, the poems nag at the threadbare veil between the known and as of yet to-be-known. By turns brooding and bemused, the poet turns his attention to a past that recedes as quickly as it can be approached, to the examples and lessons of art, film, and poetry—Max Ernst, Alfred Hitchcock, and Li Ho—and to the ordinary mess we call today.

Kevin Killian on Puppet Wardrobe by Daniel Tiffany

Cover of Puppet Wardrobe"It would be hard to summarize my views of Daniel Tiffany's book PUPPET WARDROBE without resorting to hyperbole. We all know there are dozens of undeservedly neglected poetry books arriving every year, but the mystery that surrounds this one is like that of the Mary Celeste, ominous and thick with Stygian gloom of the high seas. Tiffany should be a household name and not just for silver or breakfast! They should be carrying him on their shoulders when they win the Rose Bowl. You see, I'm at it already." —Kevin Killian (Amazon Top 100 Reviewer) at Amazon.com (10/2007).

"Tom Dvorske on Adam Clay's The Wash" in H_NGM_N: An Online Journal of Poetry and Poetics

Cover of The Wash"Clay . . . revisits romanticism and allows us to experience it in much the same way that I imagine those first readers of Blake, Shelley, and Clare might have experienced their work. And it’s a visit worth making." "Tom Dvorske on Adam Clay's The Wash" in H_NGM_N: An Online Journal of Poetry and Poetics.
