Summary

Poetry. swallowed on purpose to make the taker have bliss, all the world are nothing like lips hair, cheeks. in the breath hear speak faith, make love groan swear my judgment in deeds (from Artery). Selections from GIVING UP THE GHOST, A'S DREAM, THE GRACES, A POSSIBLE LIFE, CODEX, INTO DISTANCES, A DOOR, FOUR VIEWS OUT OF PARIS and INVOLUNTARY LYRICS, as well as previously uncollected pieces. THE PARADISE OF FORMS is a beautiful book and an excellent selection of Shurin's work. A poetry of lyric complexity, determined in its exploration of the 'personal' as a territory of multiple voices and multiple selves - Michael Palmer.
