CONTEMPORARY CLASSICS POETRY SERIES.

Invisible Cities Press is pleased to launch a new poetry series with the publication of four volumes by highly-regarded, award-winning poets.

Series edit editor Roger Weingarten is the author of eight books of poetry and co-editor of four anthologies.

Roman Fever

Marcus Cafagna

Cafagna's first hook of poems, The Broken World, was selected by Yusef Komunyakaa for the National Poetry Series. His poems have appeared in The Beacon Best of 1999, The American Poetry Review, The Southern Review TriQuarterly, DoubleTake, and The Three-penny Review, among others. Writing of Roman Fever, Bruce Weigl calls Cafagna "a poet of the old way: the singer of songs whose music records and then tells us back the endlessly unfolding story of who we are." Poetry says Cafagna is "the South Bronx of the soul."

Little Ice Age

Maureen Seaton

For her books of poetry--Furious Cooking, The Sea among the Cupboards, and Fear of Subways-- Maureen Seaton has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, two Pushcart Prizes, the Iowa Prize, the Lambda Book Award, and the McAfee Discovery Award. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, The Boston Review, New American Writing, Paris Review, and The New Republic. Norton Anthology editor Paul Hoover exclaims that her poetry "makes me want to leap out of my chair in the happiness of discovery."

The Glowing River

Jack Myers

Author of seven collections of poetry and five hooks about poetry, Jack Myers has won awards from the Texas Institute of Letters, the National Poetry Series, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Seamus Heaney says of Myers's poems that they "take us to a place beyond their salutary laughter where we can once again trust in sanity, tenderness, tolerance, freedom, art, and love."

Animal Soul

Bob Hicok

Bob Hicok's second book, The Legend of Light, won the 1995 Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry and was an ALA Booklist Notable Book of the Year. His poetry has appeared in such magazines as The New Yorker, The Iowa Review, Ploughshares, and Poetry. "Mr. Hicok's gift lies somewhere between those of the surgeon and the god of the Foundry and convalescent home," says The New York Times. Yusef Komunyakaa says of the new collection, "Animal Soul embodies an imagistic world shaped out of the mercy of language and music.
