Dmitry Itskov: A Cento
by Dana Levin • from Banana Palace • Copper Canyon Press
Dana Levin has published three previous books of poetry: Wedding Day (Copper Canyon), Sky Burial (Copper Canyon), and her first book, In the Surgical Theatre, which won the APR/Honickman Award in 1999.
In Banana Palace, the future of the body is what is at stake: bodies corporeal and political, ecological and spiritual.

"The cumulative effect of these lectures is magnificent and inspiring. Paula Meehan is, by a very, very wide margin, the most important thinking poet of her generation. In a world that has become more hopeless than hopeful, these deeply spiritual essays will be an important dressing-station in our worldwide, darkening battlefield."
