Morning Rites | Reed Bye

A six-part verse-manual for waking life. Impelled by ‘simple measures in the American idiom’ suffused with 21st century esse, Reed Bye charts a precise and radiant course through sentient postmodern life. Morning Rites is replete with Bye’s characteristically “wry insights into instability’s forms of onwardness,” where “deep clarity is found—by a rare wonder—in pure utterance.”

 

Poetic Faith | David Mutschlecner

A contemplative study of timeless themes in the poet's practice. With disarming clarity and compassion, Mutschlecner celebrates the “active mystery of what most vitally informs the world,” shining a radiant and forgiving light into philosophy and theology. In Poetic Faith, “Mutschlecner becomes our genius,” writes Elizabeth Robinson, “a tutelary spirit that guides us into the plenitude of poetry.”

Remembering Jack Collom

Celestial references notwithstanding, Jack Collom’s “lune”—name-fellow and partner to Robert Kelly’s English-language haiku—is our namesake; Collom’s singular pedagogy, ecopoetics, and person has informed The Lune at every turn. In this video, Jack Collom (1931–2017) presents work from Yes And No, and guides us into the joyous collaborative heart of poetry at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Café.
