Tradition and innovation …

… The Craft and Verve of Aaron Poochigian. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Despite being a respected classical translator (his version of Jason and the Argonauts is as superb as his Sappho), Poochigian's outstanding first book of original poetry, The Cosmic Purr, received little critical attention. Earlier this month Etruscan Press released his extraordinary verse novel, Mr Either/Or, which may be the catalyst for the critical attention he deserves.
