Franco Cortese

I don’t know what you expected. I know it wasn’t this. A beautifully realised collection of poems set against a backdrop of irregular or asymmetrical visual leaps and code. In the direction of a simple, yet open-ended structure of disarray, which of course goes to the core values of Western Civilization and disputed the existence of single meaning. Cortese applies a linguistic tone and image so crisp and clear, the book becomes a groove so very deep you can see the light clearly etched in the printed surface.Gorgeous. I know it wasn’t this.
