ISBN: 978-1-883197-14-8
Price: $14.95

Poetry. Nature. East-West traditions.
Richard Lewis with SHAKING THE GRASS FOR DEW, his first collection of original work, can be seen, perhaps, as the modern Western equivalent of the great nature poets of the East–Wang Wei and Han-Shan come to mind. Richard Lewis writes a kind of surreal metaphysics untamed and unlike anything being written in America today. The Neruda of Tao-inspired poems, Lewis’s longer Issa-like, haiku-like poems are fresh with the dew from whence they came: a place deep in the spirit of nature. An amazing and timely vision coming from someone who has lived most of his life in New York City.

Price: $8.00

Poetry. Appalachian Studies.
The author of two previous award-winning books on Cherokee culture, Barbara R. Duncan’s first collection of poems extends her talents as a songwriter into the literature of the southern Appalachians in a way reminiscent of work that came out of the Fugitive movement over a generation ago. Her attention to detail of flora and fauna and allegiance to tradition, shows why she is one of the most honored folklorists in America. These poems are as heartfelt and passionate as they are gentle and place-provoking.

What Co$t Freedom?
$6, 14 pages, paper, limited edition

“With What Co$t Freedom?, Michael Revere has unleashed a poem that can only be described as a modern-day Book of Revelations. A “Howl” for our times, it is at once spiritual and secular, capturing both the sacred and the profane. Hip and holy, Hop and horror, it is a cautionary tome that is, if nothing else, a wake-up call for humanity during these forboding times when the appeal of laissez-faire capitalism seems to be stronger than common sense, stronger than survival.” – Thomas Rain Crowe

Poems From Snow Hill Road
$8, 40 pages, paper, limited edition

“First book by poet-ecoactivist Brent Martin. One of the best small books about place I’ve ever seen. Written from and about the community where he lives in rural western North Carolina, Snow Hill Road shines with the confidence of personal metaphors that bring the people and the hills alive. A mature start for a mature poet.” -Thomas Rain Crowe

New Native Press (2006)
Paperback: 91 pages / $12.50

ISBN: 1-883197-22-8
Poetry/Literature/Appalachian Studies

From the back cover:

“Way back when, a literary gent by the name of E.L. Pound, from Hailey, Idaho, announced to the world: “I divide poetry into what I can read and what I cannot read.” I am new to Jeff Davis’s work but hit’ll read!!! It reminds me that writers named Robert Creeley and Charles Olson once taught at Black Mountain College in Buncombe County NC – and made a difference.” – Jonathan Williams

by Ted Pope

New Native Press (2006)
Paperback: 61 pages / $12.50

ISBN: 1-883197-20-1
Poetry/Literature/World Cultures

From the back cover:

A hybrid combination of wise old sage and someone teeting on the edge describes Ted Pope in performance. On the page his work, likewise, combines ancient wisdom and that which is out of control. A walking contradiction, he is infused with a kind of charge rarely experienced, either onstage or on the page, in any time or space, in any culture or Age. In his word, his writing is imbued with an extra-terrestrial grounding that, for the reader, brings on vertigo while being in love with flight. And fly he does!

From ancient Egypt to the netherworlds of the subconscious, Ted Pope’s rEdlipsticK takes us on a journey of imagination bordering on legend. “Hang on!” he says, “and leave the flying to us.”

From the Back Cover:
“For any who might have doubted that the human brain is the most explosively articulate of expert systems or feared that the best minds of our re-generation are being devoured by the Internet, this is the howl of the 90s, a poetic rallying cry for humane technology.” –Benjamin Dunlap

The first conscious collection of satirical poems from the Information Superhighway.

Anthems of
an Uncut Field

    Dear Publisher,

    This summer Poets House invites you to celebrate the 2010 Poets House Showcase, a festival of the art unlike any other—where all of this year’s new books, from publishers large and small across America, will be on display.

    Inclusion in the Showcase is entirely FREE. To participate, please email to let us know of your interest in participating in the Showcase and then send us review copies of your latest poetry books. The 2010 Showcase will include all poetry and poetry-related titles (volumes by individual authors, anthologies, chapbooks, biographies, critical studies, essay collections, CDs, DVDs, etc.) published since April 2009.
