Mantic Semantic by A.L. Nielsen, professor at Penn State University. Nielsen writes with a deft and crisp hand using today's culture movements to his taste and insight. Be it music, text, sport(s) or history or language. It may be filmmaker Stan Brackhage or hit maker James Brown. It may be the history of Virgina or the riff of jargon. Nielsen has an eye and sense to select what to write about and how to do that. This chapbook will, if you don’t already know his work, give you an immediate and taser like jolt from one of today’s top poets. Period.
