The Encyclopedia of Scotland - Salt Modern Poets (Paperback)Annie Finch (author)
- Not available
The Encyclopedia of Scotland is a passionate invocation to a Muse at once abundant and excruciating, a performance poem for soul-voice and attendant daemons. At one time performed by Finch with a musical ensemble, this rhythmic feast enacts a complex ritual of self-initiation into the realm of poetry.

The easiest way to describe The Encyclopedia of Scotland is as an attempt to thrust one's poetry in all directions, directed largely by the sensual pleasures of language itself. As such, it bears a distant kinship with a number of disparate works, including those of Mina Loy & even the Baroness Else von Freytag-Loringhoven, Bob Brown & Bern Porter, Lee Ann Brown's ventures into the ballad, Robert Duncan's Stein imitations of the early 1950s, and, perhaps most closely, the ludic verse of the late Lynn Lonidier. Not, as I said, your typical new formalist fare.-- Ron Silliman * Silliman's Blog *
