_x000B_A volume in the National Poetry Series, selected by Mark Doty_x000B__x000B_Representing nothing less than a tour-de-force of formal invention and emotional intensity, Oni Buchanans Spring encompasses radically contrasting work. Ecstatic, visually intricate rhapsodies are juxtaposed with tight, sonnet-like poems, and wispy columns of verse brush up against large-scale epics and kinetic text. Buchanan also exploits the subtleties of print typography to present poems that take every advantage of the conventional page. _x000B__x000B_This collections point of departure is the paradox of existence as an individual in a political and violent world. All of the formal innovations in this book have in common an urgent need for texture and polyphony, and the poems attempt to discover how to fulfill the individual human responsibility of surviving as a resiliently loving and hopeful living creature. _x000B__x000B_An accompanying multimedia compact disc offers a full Flash-animated version of the printed kinetic work, The Mandrake Vehicles.?
