Collected Poems by Alexander Theroux - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesAlexander Theroux 4 Mar 2015 11:10 AM

Collected Poems
by Alexander Theroux

672-page color 6" x 9" x 2" hardcover
$39.99 | 978-1-60699-802-1

Ships in: April 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

The publication of Alexander Theroux’s Collected Poems, a gathering of more than 660 poems, an astonishing creative output, will be among the major literary events of the year. Here is a full cornucopia of sonnets, odes, ballads, free verse, triolets, pure, satires, narratives, dramatic monologues, fanciful meditations, flytings and harangues, ruminations on death and lost love, and no end of lyrics both beautiful and fierce. Taken altogether they contrive to make up a record of the author's deepest thoughts and reflect the dramatis personae of his life. Theroux captures in his work those rare, frail, but precious truths, inaccessible to the common run of men that would otherwise have vanished into nescience. Sardonic, astute, impertinent, tender, clever, warm-hearted, delphic, truculent, comic, defiantly aggressive, and often achingly personal, he shows an intensity of observation and invention.

Artforum
Cartoonist pioneer, Dash Shaw, is forever reaching beyond what we perceive and accept as comics. In the current issue of ArtForum, new on the stands this week, Shaw made a Top Ten list of his favorites in the art, publishing and just whole damn world. Here's a pic Dash took of the first page featuring Breakdown Press, a Quaker comic, a 3-D musuem artists use as a modern morgue (files of reference art), and our favorite Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. Grab a copy at your local bookstore to read the rest of the Top Ten or visit the website!

Dash is currently a Cullman Center Fellow and is spending much of his time researching his own graphic novel on Quakers at the New York Public Library.
