Potes & Poets Press
Announces Two New Publications

by Ray DiPalma

Provocations , a major new book by Ray DiPalma. Apart from various limited editions recently published in the United States and abroad, Provocations is DiPalma's first full-length collection of new work in almost six years. Resisting easy classification but continuing examination of the relationship between language and thought, the instinctive lyricism, formal range and speculative complexities present in Provocations reveal DiPalma's writing at its most animated and accessible.

by Jessica Grim

"Reading and rereading this extraordinary manuscript, I find myself asking where these poems most completely come alive: word, line or "sentence"? The truth is I can't tell- the poems leap off the page at all levels, as if Jessica Grim had tapped into the secret of a fourth dimension. Playful, serious, intense and wise all at once, with an accurate eye and an absolute ear, Locale contains some of the most riveting poems of our time. The art of the 21st Century starts here."

-Ron Silliman

The Art of Practice: 45 Contemporary Poets
Edited by Dennis Barone and Peter Ganick

This anthology is a continuation of the project started by Ron Stillman's In the American Tree and Douglas Messerli's Language Poetries. It has over 400 pages of poetry generally considered "avant garde" or "post-language". Most of the writers represented are in their 30s and 40s, and others have been overlooked in the past anthologies.

Lyn Hejinian says: "The importance of this addition to the library of our experience is enormous. It is with great gratitude that I welcome The Art of Practice."

"Writing is captions that are to the inner.

Just have moves be in tandem.

This play induces movement that is minute
and has no function, requiring complete

Not having a function is attentiveness. It joy
memory or is it this movement?

The phrases continue to change to become
movement in itself. The movement induces a
greyhound flying curled legless."
