9780981859101: Polytheogamy (Poet/Artist Collaboration Series)

Polytheogamy is the fifth installment in the Saturnalia Books Artist/Poet Collaboration series. Poet Timothy Liu and artist Greg Drasler explore themes of sexuality, marriage, monogamy, and fidelity through a series of 64 lyric poems and 24 painting/sculptures. Liu’s terse playful poems and Drasler’s sparse decorative spaces create a thrilling, sensual dance, playing off themes of “emptiness and fullness,” as renowned critic Charles Altieri explains in his introduction.

Review:

“It is difficult not to think about Robert Creeley when reading Liu's sparse and unreletingly lucid lines. Even Liu's insistenly enthmatic logic echoes Creeley, albeit with an indulgence approaching but not embracing surrealism. But there are emotional timbres that even a gay Robert Creeley might not risk.... Liu's lucidity is ludic, or almost ludic because of his sense of the freedom evoked by his insistent refusal of lyric expansiveess. The negatives born of Liu's lucidity become strange sources of plenitude.” (Charles Altieri)
