Book of the Month: Scarecrow
Enter now to win a copy of
by Robert Fernandez
“Condensed in this refined language are expressions of unprecedented excess, rudeness, violence, and free thinking. The effect is a kind of gothic architecture, where the thing contained feels bigger than its container, and strains against it. If more poets wrote like Fernandez, we might be living in a golden age.”
—Aaron Kunin, author of Cold Genius
“Robert Fernandez's incantatory poetry taps into the vatic hum of the earth. His Scarecrow, as human effigy, calls out the predicament of the self at the end of history. He speaks in the dialect of deep time.”
—Andrew Joron, author of Trance Archive
