Poetry. Art. KRAZY is a book of visual poems in the international avant-grade "concrete poetry" tradition, with radical re- arrangements of black words and letters on white pages, accompanied by a performance script that emphasizes metaphoric, linguistic, political and psychological interconnections within and between poems.
Jane Augustine is a poet, critic, short story writer, visual poetry/sound poetry performance artist, and scholar of women in modernity. Twice awarded fellowships by the New York State Council, she has published four books of poetry, most recently KRAZY (Marsh Hawk Press, 2015) and A WOMAN'S GUIDE TO MOUNTAIN CLIMBING (Marsh Hawk Press, 2008). She has performed her visual/sound poems at Cubiculo, the Poetry Project and other downtown venues in New York City and at Naropa University, Boulder, Colorado, where she has taught in the Summer Writing Program. She lives in Manhattan and Westcliffe, Colorado.Review :
Jane Augustine's new book KRAZY is a stunning performance of visual wit and nuance, invoking the concrete poem as an ongoing viable feminist intervention. There s charm in this polemical cut-up, collage, and hand-drawn gesture, as her ethos plays with the Buddhist notion of the Void and female identity. KRAZY invokes the palpable pictorial orality of the ovoid, of the ova, of sex, desire, of exit and dissing, and so much more. Stand up and cheer. --Anne Waldman
Take Concrete & Futuristic graphics, cross them with sound poetics & a woman s wit, and if you're lucky you ll get KRAZY. For the ear, for the voice, for the eye, for the mind Jane Augustine s feminist performance calls us to full attention and restores a lost chapter of 20th.c. poetics. How long we have been waiting for this book. --Susan Tichy
No matter if the performance scores or the visual poems were created first, in each series of KRAZY they work as mutual insights into each other s nature. This is a multi-sensory book, which should be seen and read and read aloud. 4 a non-native speaker like me it is especially relieving to experience that word-roots, spelling, letter and digit shapes are connected by something more than rules: they are connected by the poet s intuition, which finds 4mations everywhere. No eye, no ear, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind. So welcome to the constraints and let's "Observe the FORmS." It is Krazy how playful they are! --Márton Koppány
