"Tearing it up from inside, cyclically time for something new, he gives us that again. Actually, listening or reading we come to feel, like Goethe’s beloved, that Brown wants to have everything, to give everything. To us!" - Dylan Byron on Brandon Brown at 3AM!!!

I’m thinking that in a European language Brown could perhaps have been a kind of subtle prose writer; in this English, he’s consummately a poet. Maybe one of the reasons I keep thinking about what else Brown might have been is that I’m still surprised he is at all. Even so, he shows a strong s...

MY VIRTUAL PUSSY, MY ARTIFICIAL LUNGS

"Something feels wrong about calling Juliana Huxtable’s new book a 'poetry collection.' Huxtable’s poems feel more like Tumblr posts whose maneuvering of space, time, and genre is downright masterly. Straddling narrative poetry, speculative fiction, and archival document, Mucus in my Pineal Gland doesn’t present itself as a series of cohesive object-ideas (i.e. 'poems'), but rather, as a colloquium of our voices, connected online."

Poet Anaïs Duplan reviews Juliana Huxtable’s otherworldly collection Mucus in My Pineal Gland.

Juliana Huxtable on her art and writing practicesin the new issue of i-D:

i-D: Can you tell us a little about what drives your writing practice?

JH: I think at this point I've accepted that I don't necessarily know, but it's just something that I need, because I've always been a writer. I've kept a journal since I was really little -- eight or nine -- and my journals have always kind of forayed into things that are not always so literal. For whatever reason, it felt like something that was good and necessary for me to do. It's always been a way for me to get things out.

Brooke Powers and Juliana Huxtable talk being trans, tumblr, DJing and practical humanism.

Mucus in My Pineal Gland

Steve Zultanski on Juliana Huxtable's Mucus in My Pineal Gland for 4 Columns:

"Huxtable’s work is not just an exercise in simulacra: sure, it layers references to memes, nightlife, and fashion, but always in light of lived psychological and social tensions. It’s not so much about the construction of identity, but about the real effects (anxiety, desire, understanding, ignorance) engendered by the construction of identity. Nowhere is this clearer than in her new book, Mucus in My Pineal Gland—a dense and sprawling set of texts with no particular allegiance to genre or perspective. Billed as “poems, performance scripts, and essays,” the pieces don’t fit neatly into any of those categories. That doesn’t mean that the question of genre disappears: rather, it reappears consistently throughout the book as undecidable."

The All Caps Imagination of Juliana Huxtable

Juliana Huxtable in Out magazine: "Throughout Mucus in my Pineal Gland, Huxtable’s characters plumb digital underworlds searching for freedom, sometimes finding fetishization instead. “THE iMOBILE, EVER-PRESENT SHARE-TUMBLE-TWEET-POST-REBLOG REGIME SEEMS TO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY KILLED THE FLESH OF IT ALL, THE BODY BEHIND THE IMAGE,” she writes. Her characters are not ciphers, which she reminds you through her writing. They have jobs they have to get to in the morning; nightlife is a beacon. The body is vulnerable, and subject to change. Accoutrements enhance the form, while covering scars. Underneath, we are fluids."

Thank you to Brett Fletcher Lauer and the Poetry Society of America for publishing this excerpt from Poem Without Suffering, with a little note about its origins.

an excerpt from "Poem Without Suffering" To have it happen, but to have it not be considered tragedy, at least not in the traditional sense, the way in which one senses form in drama as human suffering. It's not that. It's not that because suffering is irrelevant to the act itself. That is, it c...

Josef Kaplan's POEM WITHOUT SUFFERING reviewed by Quarterly West:

These textual rabbit holes enact our current moment’s thorough colonization by the logic of the Internet: a Google search of, say, “Columbine Shooting” or “Sandy Hook” could ultimately lead one to a history of the video game Doom or the current price for a Samurai sword. Numerous particles of information exist now on the same perpetually expanding plane (or at least appear to). In other words: the Internet is all foreground. Yet even as the poem points to this apparent leveling of informational hierarchies, its spiraling similes work to question their own efficacy, as when the bullet’s force is compared to the unprecedented athletic achievements of “Someone / like Usain Bolt, / whose last name / recalls the term used / to describe the / ammunition fitted / to a crossbow…/ which prefigures / the notion of a bullet” (24)

Josef Kaplan is reviewed in the new issue of BOMB magazine by Ted Dodson. Check it out on newsstands everywhere. "I am here holding this book that is a fairly unadorned, matte-black object with some discernable though unassuming lettering and a serial number on the exterior, deciding what I think about it when I should have known better all along. No matter the exegetical histrionics I could submit this object to, it is fabricated to suffer the folly of analysis. In a poem without suffering, it's the poem that suffers us." Order a copy here:

"Kaplan follows his controversial conceptual work, Kill List, with an accomplished exploration of much more sensitive matter. This book-length poem is, essentially, one continually expanding, macabre scene: a bullet hitting a child. Kaplan magnifies every particle of this horror, including the physics and biology of bullet meeting body and the interactions within a voyeuristic crowd."

Wonder is pleased to announce the publication of Robert Fitterman's NEVERMIND, which will be released in a limited edition this spring.

In NEVERMIND, Robert Fitterman relaxes the lyrics of Nirvana’s iconic album of the same title into a slow poetry spread across 700 pages, one that halts grunge’s hammering pace into a meditation on the emotional spaces of minimalist and concrete poetry, and the physical space of the book itself.

PEN has posted "three arches : böbrach" from Uljana Wolf's i mean i dislike that fate that i was made to where (translated by Sophie Seita). Read here:

Sophie Seita is the recipient of a 2015 PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grant for her translation of poetry by German poet Uljana Wolf, whose globalized, border-crossing poetry seems uniquely disposed to translation while also presenting many challenges.
