More than 400 pages of Edward Dorn’s previously uncollected poetry gleaned from ephemera, correspondence, and notebooks housed at numerous archives in the United States and the UK are gathered here in Derelict Air. From Dorn’s first Beat poems in 1952 and visionary juvenalia from his study at Black Mountain to the long poems that were central to the development of the British Poetry Revival and translations of native texts from the Mayans and Aztecs, the transatlantic roots of Dorn’s anticapitalism are fully visible. Whereas Dorn’s Collected Poems exhibits the poet that he became, Derelict Air reflects a career of becoming, full of unacknowledged successes in the diverse forms of the lyric, the pronouncement, the mock-epic, and the epigram. Recovering four lost books, this collection significantly expands Dorn’s oeuvre, including impassioned outbursts written during the Cuban missile crisis, illustrated bucolics for an unfinished children’s book, “confetti poems” meant to shower the 1968 DNC, outtakes from his sci-fi epic Gunslinger, and a relentless extension of his 1990s “stock ticker.” Complete with scholarly endnotes, manuscript facsimiles, and a cover by the painter Raymond Obermayr, this substantial offering of Edward Dorn’s poetry is a must-have for any reader interested in postwar American modernism.

About the Author:

Edward Dorn was a poet whose collections include Chemo Sábe, Gunslinger, and Way More West, among many others. He was a professor at Essex University, the University of Colorado–Boulder, and the University of Idaho. He is the author of more than 40 books of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translation. Justin Katko is a poet who runs the press Critical Documents. Kyle Waugh is the coeditor of The Intent On: The Collected Poems of Kenneth Irby, 1962–2006. He lives in New York City.

Review:

"The book is deep and allusive, but what carries us along, especially on first reading, is how graceful and absorbing Dorn's ideas are, how clever and amusing his dialogue and situations, and how he has made a world from something at once universal and culturally specific, bristling with the time and place it steps out of and moves beyond. It is a baffling and brilliant work. . . . What you get from Dorn is not available anywhere else in poetry.”  —Guardian

"Derelict Air is the volume of poems Ed Dorn enthusiasts have been long awaiting." —Patrick James Dunagan, therumpus.net
