The fifth volume of our Spotlight poetry series, Compression & Purity is a new collection of poetry by Los Angeles--based African American surrealist Will Alexander. Known for densely textured visionary epics influenced by poets like Aime Cesaire and Cesar Vallejo, Alexander here returns to shorter forms to address his ecological, cosmological, and historical concerns. Highlights include a monologue from the perspective of "The Blood Penguin," a song by the "New Water on Mars," and Alexander's autobiographical lyric essay, "My Interior Vita," describing the evolution of his artistic consciousness through jazz and surrealism. Compression & Purity confirms Alexander's reputation among surrealism's foremost contemporary practitioners.
