Michael Hannon

Soft Cover

May, 2002

SOLD OUT 

Description:

Hannon does in poem after poem, trust oblivion that is, with the slenderest of reeds. His work has been widely published in journals and anthologies. He is the author of three full-length collections: Poems & Days (1985), Ordinary Messengers (1991), and Trusting Oblivion (2002). Kenneth Rexroth said of Hannon's work, "A very good poet indeed, and certainly one of the few Tantric writers in any language who is both profound and witty."

Bittersweet Kaleidoscope 

The narrative marries the lyrical in this frisky book of poems by the legendary founder of Momentum Press, chronicler of LA’s alt-lit history, and beloved professor at CSULB. If sincerity is the enemy of style, Bill Mohr is a master.
