About the Author
Marvin Cohen goes into the realm of language for language's sake, but he never loses his zany hold on the world or his fresh sense of what words can be made to do.
- Raymond Sokolov, Newsweek
In Marvin Cohen, one senses the metaphysical thirst as he questions the notion of reality, as he distorts the accepted relationships of time and death, as he approaches dark subjects with good-natured humor, and particularly as he demonstrates his extraordinary power over words and word associations that break down the expected ones. One should note that he no longer feels the need for even a semblance of verse to express his sense of poetry.
