Synopsis: The poems of "The Literal World" -- the premier book commissioned from the new press Atelos -- play off various American genres: Protestant sermons (and the idea of a lost paradise), Lewis and Clark's journals of exploration, and the Western among them, each formative narratives, accounts of an America its fathers and mothers' sought to create. As a private parallel to this public view, Day concludes the book with "Narratives from the Crib, " an intimate but wry, tender but individualistic account by an infant of the person he or she is meant someday to be. Jean Day's works have been translated into Finnish, Swedish, Russian, French and Spanish. Cover photo-still from Jim Jarmusch's film Dead Man.

About the Author: Jean Day (born in 1954), is an American poet. Born in Syracuse, NY, and raised in Middletown, RI, Day graduated from Antioch College in 1977. Since then she has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and worked in literary publishing, currently as associate editor of Representations. She was acquisitions manager, then executive director of Small Press Distribution from 1977 to 1989, developing close associations with many Bay Area writers and publishers, including Lyn Hejinian, Bob Perelman, Steve Benson, Johanna Drucker, Barrett Watten, Alan Bernheimer, Kit Robinson, Laura Moriarty, and Tom Mandel. She is married to the philosopher and art critic John Rapko. Day has published six books of poetry, and her work has appeared in a number of anthologies, including The Best American Poetry 2004, Moving Borders: Three Decades of Innovative Writing by Women (1998), and In the American Tree (1986). Her translations from the Russian (with Elena Balashova) have been anthologized in Third Wave: The New Russian Poetry (1992) and Crossing Centuries: The New Generation in Russian Poetry (2000).
