Clayton Eshleman

 

continued

When some might say that the turbulence of our souls can be solved by psychotropic drugs, or that the artistic experiments of the avant-garde have been made irrelevant by technology, Eshleman's work stands as defiant testament to the hope that we are more than this, that we can still participate in a radical imaginative freedom. Near the end of Anticline he writes

The poet can have no system overseer, no

third eye at the peak of a pyramid

like a lighthouse beam onto his psychic sleights--

his stare weight stairway

descends through

a Self-assembled sylphwork

of anti-saviorial

defiance.
Clayton Eshleman reads from his work on April 8 at perhaps our most interesting new venue for readings, Copper Colored Mountain Arts' Red Barn, out west of town on Liberty.    (end of article)
