Neptune Park PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Neptune Park free pdf Composed as a serial cento, turning disparate texts and sources against the sensibilities of their origin, this poetry collection offers readers a skewing of verbal cliches, slogans, idioms, slang, the Southern California post-war suburban landscape, YA novels, and apocalyptic narratives. It may be described as a graphic novel without pictures -- poetry that is brilliant, brazen, and rich with contemporary underground culture and counterculture. Within the poems a synthetic vernacular is developed, veering from contemporary pidgin and biblical homilies to Mother Goose and Virgilian epic.
