Poets on Earth (at the Turn of the Third Millennium)

Curated by the editors, with a cento-preface by multimedia artist Nick Hranilovich of Shadowtrash Tape Group, Poets on Earth (at the Turn of the Third Millennium) features selected writings from twenty-nine of The Lune's chapbook titles, or thirty singular voices: a mythopoetic gathering for our time.

Poets on Earth is a unique annunciation of post-millennial poetics, galvanized by the experimental impulse of its constituency. Bicameral and motopoetic, the anthology reveals the 21st century as both contrived temporal limit (an abstraction of civic transformation and religious conquest) and powerful indication of human history, commemorating—by scintillating variety—an existential frontier.

El Creacionismo | Vicente Huidobro

Relentless in his linguistic exploration and disruption of political and emotional parlance, Vicente Huidobro (1893 - 1948) was a unique figure in the surge of literary modernism. "Creationism" is one of Huidobro's lasting literary ideas, a movement rooted in the poem's inceptive power: "It creates the wonderful and gives it a life of its own." Awake to the limits of ideology and the violence of dogma, he charged poetry with overthrowing the distinction between the real and the impossible.

The Lune is proud to present an inventive selection and bilingual edition of Vicente Huidobro's “creationist” texts, with new English translations by Jonathan Simkins and Kimrey Anna Batts.
