Hans Faverey (Author)
DescriptionPoetry. Translated from the Dutch by Francis R. Jones. "Hans Faverey's poems double as echolocations and tactile thought machines. They twist from speculative meditation into sensorial awe with Ponge-like focus and a penchant for grandeur akin to Barbara Guest. But Faverey's curious lyrics are obsessed with the temporal, the fleeting, and the long-gone: developing a poetic landscape of arrested particulars, conversations with the dead, and memories plucked from Homeric visitants. And sometimes the lines just dumbfound me in their ghostlier demarcations: 'First the message kills / the receiver, then / it kills the sender. / Whatever / the language.'" Joshua Marie Wilkinson"
