The tradition of weird poetry is one that stretches back for millennia, to the earliest literary expression of the human race. In this new volume-the first comprehensive historical anthology of weird, horrific, and supernatural poetry in more than 50 years-the editors have rightly begun their survey of weirdness in verse with Homer's "Odyssey," proceeding through Greek, Latin, and medieval verse to such towering poets of English and American literature as Coleridge, Shelley, Poe, Tennyson, and Longfellow. With the dawn of the 20th century, such leaders of horrific prose as H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Donald Wandrei, and Robert E. Howard came to the fore. Our own day has seen a remarkable resurgence in weird poetry, and such poets as Richard L. Tierney, Bruce Boston, W. H. Pugmire, and Ann K. Schwader have added to a legacy that stretches back to the dawn of time. The editors have added brief biographical notes on all the poets included, along with bibliographical information on the poems. This volume will become the standard edition of weird poetry for decades to come. S. T. Joshi is the author of "Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction" (2012) and many other works of criticism and scholarship. Steven J. Mariconda is the author of many essays on H. P. Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell, and other writers of weird fiction.

A Torrent of Terror

Rome Aboh's poetry unmistakably enwraps the condition of the politically and socially cannibalised segment of his society; and the beauty of the verse radiates from his facility with language as the stylist and linguist.

Rome Aboh's poetry unmistakably enwraps the condition of the politically and socially cannibalised segment of his society; and the beauty of the verse radiates from his facility with language as the stylist and linguist. The section "patriotism" with such poems as "hour of truth" aptly brings out the socially obligatory role of the poets whose mission goes beyond versifying and sharing their personal fantasies and urges. Similarly the poem "letter to the mp" echoes the agonies of the common masses who feel deceived by the ruling elite in their so-called democratic nations.

This collection offers five answers to the question its title implies: within us, in wild things, in change over time, in teething, and in being left behind. Beginning in the prairies and moving both in time and direction, the poems navigate the terrors in the territories of love, faith, birth and death. The poet embraces folktales and children’s stories, the Bible and the weather, humanity’s murky past and its murkier future. Chantel Lavoie voices the fears we cherish, as well as the pain we seek, in mythologies near and far from home.

Poetry. "In her best book yet, Donna de la Perrière gives us a poetry event for the ages... As the title promises, she runs the gamut from tender and lyrical poems of love and loss to the Dionysian madness of terror. The great setpiece here, 'First Love, ' details the chilling life and after-life of a rape as does no other poem I know, but there's much strong work here, from the sonorous, hollowed out écriture of 'I Am Trying to Say Fire, ' to the noisy consonants and slurry vowels of 'Mock Trial'--sound orchestration like Lorine Niedecker at her best."--Kevin Killian

Poetry. California Interest. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. Politics. Occult. With spells by Z. Ozma. "For all its gnostic scholarship, the writing of Zoe Tuck always sounds absolutely contemporary. In TERROR MATRIX, we witness drones tracking the smell of cooking onions, Amazon putting its books to death, the queer body dragged to a xenophobic Liam Neeson vehicle, and everywhere, everywhere, witches on the torture rack again. It couldn't be more 2014. Zoe's privileged form is the interruption, the break within the break, another glaring condition of the now. 'This bare life's made possible by constant rupture.' Not wonderful, not horrible, just possible. Zoe has a crystalline sense of rupture as hope, as eventful change, as the fractures in the boundaries of identity, but at the same time understands it as a most useful tool for state terror, as the violent partitioning of bodies, as the multi-media cloud cutting into and across itself in order to splinter resistance and distract from its own amorality. All who share a sense of rupture's ambiguity will treasure this 'safe poetic exercise in S&M.'"—Brent Cunningham
