Poetry. One needs only to watch and listen in gratitude as poems informed by Bronk, Niedecker, Olson (to name a few), and the landscape of Humboldt County, California, take shape in AREAS OF FOG, Joseph Masseys first full-length collection. JosephMorePoetry. One needs only to watch and listen in gratitude as poems informed by Bronk, Niedecker, Olson (to name a few), and the landscape of Humboldt County, California, take shape in AREAS OF FOG, Joseph Masseys first full-length collection. Joseph Massey sees with a composers eye and sings in a microtonality all his own. Syllable by syllable phenomena miraculously unfold. This is fantastic work, understated, charmed, and open. The world simply happens in these poems and its moments are tuned marvels. You dont want to miss it--Peter Gizzi. These are poems of ear and eye, full of echoes and luminous images. With a sensuality born of melancholy, they attend to resonant details that hover at the edge of recognition, as when Pacific fog partly obscures the view--Devin Johnston.
