In the Pure Block of the Pure Imaginery free pdf Studying the gravitational pull of the meanings people assign objects, rather than shifting subject or focus from poem to poem, this collection of prose poems demonstrates a clever construction and inclusive thought process. Versus merely mapping the human experience, as is the case with many other poetry collections, the landscape of these poems is multidimensional and twists in unexpected ways. The poet was partially inspired by Charles Baudelaire's Petits poemes en prose and Francis Ponge's La Fabrique du pre , Meier's poems take up their explorations of poetry as more than the individual line.

About Richard Meier

RICHARD MEIER was born in and raised in eastern Massachusetts. Child of public school teachers, he was educated at the Duxbury Public Schools, Hamilton College and Syracuse University. He has worked many jobs over the last 20 years: administrative assistant at the Kwan Um Zen School in Cumberland, RI- director of US Servas, an international peace organization that helps arranges home stays between people of different nationalities- office temp at many Manhattan banks and financial firms, where he was frequently told not even to answer the phone- and as an elementary school assistant teacher and teacher. The first job he held for more than 9 months was as visiting poet in the public schools, beginning with a 5 year stint in New York with Teachers and Writers Collaborative, and most recently in Chicago with the Poetry Center of Chicago s Hands on Stanzas, where he received the Gwendolyn Brooks Award for Excellence in teaching in 2006. He has also worked and volunteered as a visiting poet in public schools in Virginia, Pittsburgh, and Beloit and Madison, WI. Over the years he has given thousands of children the opportunity to write poetry and had his own writing deeply influenced by the children s capacity for immediacy, seriousness, and play. In recent years he has taught at Beloit College, Columbia College Chicago, and is currently writer-in-residence at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. He is the author of two previous books of poetry, Terrain Vague, selected by Tomas Salamun for the Verse Prize, and Shelley Gave Jane a Guitar. He currently lives in Madison and Chicago, where he joins Lisa Fishman and Henry Morren in taking care of and unschooling James Fishman-Morren. According to James, Richard is the P.E., music, and art teacher, with a little poetry thrown in for good measure."
