Mixed Blood is interested in the contemporary African-American avant-garde, writers experimenting with form and content in the post-Black Arts moment; but it is also interested in experimental practices (post-L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, Oulipo, etc.) more commonly associated with white writers. The publication--based on an ongoing Penn State readings and talks series--is unusual in its emphasis on literary innovation and its deliberate and very aggressive emphasis on race and the languages of and about race. This inaugural issue features new work by Erica Hunt, Juliana Spahr, Amiri Baraka, Jen Hofer, and Ed Roberson, Essays by the writers--on neo-colonialism, African-American verse practices, translation and cross-cultural collaboration, and more--are paired with their poems. From Amiri Baraka's essay: "Coming to New York, the fundamental thing was that we put together a kind of united front against academia, in terms of poetry. The different schools you heard about--the Beats, the New York School, the San Francisco School, the Black Mountain School--those were all young people like me who were looking not to write like the Pack-Simpson anthology, to try to write a different kind of poetry."

When Blackness Rhymes with Blackness (Dalkey Archive Scholarly Series)

Lyrical, provocative, and highly original—a groundbreaking book by one of America’s smartest young poet-critics. In When Blackness Rhymes with Blackness, Rowan Ricardo Phillips pushes African American poetry to its limits by unraveling “our desire to think of African American poetry as African American poetry.” Phillips reads African American poetry as inherently allegorical and thus “a successful shorthand for the survival of a poetry but unsuccessful shorthand for the sustenance of its poems.” Arguing in favor of the “counterintuitive imagination,” Phillips demonstrates how these poems tend to refuse their logical insertion into a larger vision and instead dwell indefinitel...

"I have had a dream past the wit of man to say what dream it was," says Bottom. "I have had a dream, and I wrote a Big Book about it," Arno Schmidt might have said. Schmidt's rare vision is a journey into many literary worlds. First and foremost it is about Edgar Allan Poe, or perhaps it is language itself that plays that lead role; and it is certainly about sex in its many Freudian disguises, but about love as well, whether fragile and unfulfilled or crude and wedded. As befits a dream upon a heath populated by elemental spirits, the shapes and figures are protean, its protagonists suddenly transformed into trees, horses, and demigods. In a single day, from one midsummer dawn to a fiery second, Dan and Franzisca, Wilma and Paul explore the labyrinths of literary creation and of their own dreams and desires. Since its publication in 1970 Zettel's Traum/Bottom's Dream has been regarded as Arno Schimdt's magnum opus, as the definitive work of a titan of postwar German literature. Readers are now invited to explore its verbally provocative landscape in an English translation by John E. Woods.
