New Review of MARGINALIA FOR A NATURAL HISTORY

Taylor coverGreat reviews of Keith Taylor’s stunning poetry chapbook keep rolling in: the LA Review writes “[Taylor] encapsulates a bold rendering of everyday detail within the fabric of natural and human existence. Marginalia for a Natural History, a series of eight-line, nine-syllable-per-line poems, seeks to carry out a project in formal constraints by condensing vibrant and imagistic language that guides the reader to focus on suspended moments… Fusing poetic language with scientific precision and knowledge, each poem freezes time to explore the proximity and distance of the speaker to the subjects… Reverent and even-paced, this concentrated poem series grasps the importance of slowing down, and receiving each moment as it arrives.” Click here to buy your copy; at just $9, it’s a perfect stocking-stuffer.
