Description - Revenants by Mark Nowak

* "Mark Nowak encounters the whispers of creation and cultural remembrance in his eminent, visionary poetry.Revenants is an original return to a splendid ethos of ancestral word patterns, and the images bear the solemn pleasures of time, place, and singular landscapes." -Gerald Vizenor * "One of the most original collections of poetry I've read in years. In it, the curling smoke of myth mixes with the smoke from cooking sausages, and heavy steps of history are crisscrossed by the indelible birdtracks of particular places, recorded by the poet in his fieldnotes. Polish words, photographs, documentary quotations, and a deeply intelligent attention to `the multiple truths//apparent in others' lives' set this book apart from any other. Nowak's canny, peripatetic sentences break off in medias res, repeat and extend themselves, or gather into anaphoric chant rhythms. His poems are a new way of reading the world." -Forest Gander
