Edson for Leap Day!
Today is Leap Day, that once-every-four-years date that keeps our earth spinning in sync with the calendar. Russell Edson, one of the great innovators and oddities in the contemporary poetry landscape is our official recommended reading for Leap Day.
Check out Oberlin College Press to read more about Edson's selected poems, The Tunnel, a truly mind-expanding and inimitable collection of prose poems from one of our great living poets.
Oberlin College Press's Field Translation Series is one of our personal favorites. We can't recommend this series enough.
