Basil King’s new book, History Now, Marsh Hawk Press, 2017, is here.
It is the latest segment in what poet Laurie Duggan is calling King’s epic, Learning to Draw. Eileen Tabios in her online “poetry engagement” Galetea Ressurects, calls it HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
All five books to date are pictured below. Another publication, a beautiful chapbook In the Field Where Daffodils Grow was published by Vincent Katz’s Libellum Books, but is not pictured as the text also appears in the large Learning to Draw/A History in the middle of the photo below. We are grateful to him and to other publishers who issued chapbooks or published segments of this work in their magazines, explicitly Mark Lamoureux, Sanjay Agnihotri, Ed Foster, David Caddy, Dale Smith and Hoa Nguyen, and Peter Ganick.
