The Lantern Cage from the Author: Kelly Grovier. The poems in Kelly Grovier's third collection share a fascination with the mysteries that underlie our everyday existence, that other world' we sense in the undeciphered sands' shifting at our feet. By turns lyrical and philosophical, elegiac and playful, The Lantern Cage is a collection located on the margins of vision, where the invisible calculations of being remain unsolvable - a realm whose secrets are kept under lough and quay'.

Lantern Lit Vol 2 from the Author: Michael Haeflinger. A dervishly coordinated fusion of particle press heroics, compressed into a well-honed secular engine and held together by a burly split weld.Here are three prominent voices from the supposed modern era underground. Strict poetry for those disenfranchised with the aforementioned. Verse that does not succumb to a generality nor grandeur, poetry that commands itself. A gospel within a gospel, poetry for bent backs, bloody lips, spit on bricks, and love affairs where every kiss is remembered as just a kiss and yet all or any of this is an admissible necessity for the ballyhoo...perhaps only the wolves can hear.

The New Mutants from the Author: Ramzi Fawaz. Winner of the 2012 CLAGS Fellowship Award for Best First Book Project in LGBT Studies In 1964, noted literary critic Leslie Fiedler described American youth as “new mutants,” social rebels severing their attachments to American culture to remake themselves in their own image. 1960s comic book creators, anticipating Fiedler, began to morph American superheroes from icons of nationalism and white masculinity into actual mutant outcasts, defined by their genetic difference from ordinary humanity. These powerful misfits and “freaks” soon came to embody the social and political aspirations of America’s most marginalized groups, including women, racial and sexual minorities, and the working classes. In The New Mutants, Ramzi Fawaz draws upon queer theory to tell the story of these monstrous fantasy figures and how they grapple with radical politics from Civil Rights and The New Left to Women’s and Gay Liberation Movements. Through a series of comic book case studies – including The Justice League of America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, and The New Mutants –alongside late 20th century fan writing, cultural criticism, and political documents, Fawaz reveals how the American superhero modeled new forms of social belonging that counterculture youth would embrace in the 1960s and after. The New Mutants provides the first full-length study to consider the relationship between comic book fantasy and radical politics in the modern United States. Instructor's Guide
