John M. Bennett's LIBER X is a tour-de-force of poetry, mixing textual, visual, oral,typographic, and linguistic procedures to create a unique and inexhaustible work. A delight to the eye, the mind, the ear, and to one's imagination. At 226 pages, the poems vary in size from filling the page, to minimalist "haiku"; from English to Spanish (and occasional other languages) to everything in between. Bennett's signature lyrical surrealism and intelligence, his intense textual visuality and musicality, and his wild metaphorical and imagistic power are all on full display in this major new work in his canon.
