Shooting Dead Films with Poets
ISBN: 1933126000 Fractal Edge Press. 2004 In this collection of exquisite poems, the fiction editor of Milk Magazine honors celebrities of film and literature with wondrous images linked together in mysterious ways revealed only to those unswayed by their surrealism, those willing to stay with the poems as they move deeply below the surface of appearance and syntactic parsing. The power of her diction derives from the powerful deep structure linking each image to magical path of layered interpretations they invite and reward.
Range of Your Amazing Nothing
ISBN: 0982211562 Ravenna Press. 2010 Lina ramona Vitkauskas' poetry is richly textured and layered, a palimpsest pleasure. In The Range of Your Amazing Nothing, Ashbery and Superman, Lorca and Jacqueline Bisset, Nancy (the comic strip character) and Forrest Gander all coexist and inform her most amazing verse. --Denise Duhamel
