Figures for a Darkroom Voice reviewed in The Bloomsbury Review

 

In The Bloomsbury Review, Ray González reviews Noah Eli Gordon’s and Joshua Marie Wilkinson’s Figures for a Darkroom Voice.

In a hyper-surreal collaboration, Noah Eli Gordon and Joshua Marie Wilkinson take the prose poem to new, wild heights. Fragments, paragraphs, and elliptical aphorisms unleash voices and movements from the past as they transform poetic experience into present-day allusions, puzzles, and dramatic resolution. The point of this mixed-genre text is that, beneath the layers of textual composition the two poets show how simply seeing is the door to complex experience.
