Paul Siegell's wild life rifle fire proves, if proof were needed, that the electrifying art and legacy of Concrete Poetry is not dead! Siegell's book-length carmen figuratum not only flashes the reader back to the heady first days of the Noigrandes Group in Sao Paulo and Eugen Gomringer's adventures in VisPo, but even further back to Medieval anagrams, Greek bucolic poems and Sumerian figure poems. Here we find DaDa dynamite and typographical talismans freshened by a poet whose native gifts imbue this exciting work with a whole new sense of poetic object. Siegell's haptic heroism compels the reader to re-examine the basic elements of a language that we too often take for granted, in the process creating an energetic and always surprising work of both visual art and poetry. Not to be missed! Vladimir Slender-Hedge

"A stunningly beautiful work of hyper-clean concrete poetry... This is a book examining language, finding tricks in the language that the language couldn't know it had." Geof Huth --dbqp: visualizing poetics
"The effect is shocking... It seems to me to be an important book... The poem adds to the conversation about what is poetry." A Bunch Books --bookdaily.blogspot.com
