A Dream of Feet, Axelrod, David B.
1 Axelrod, David B. A Dream of Feet
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1976 089304007X / 9780893040079 First Paperback New Poetry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Cover: Bebe Barkan For Joan, Writing
"I enjoy David B. Axelrod's work. In many ways, he stands at the center of contemprory traditions; in other ways, his virtues are rare. As readily readable as excellent prose, Axelrod's poems (for they ARE poems) offer further pleasures: Axelrod is a master of the serious pun, of the metaphor nobody else would have imagined, of the kind of rime you don't notice unless you're looking for it Many of the poems in A Dream of Feet, such as the title poem, are outrageously funny; but Axelrod also goes deep--as fine poems such as 'Voyeur' and 'Once in a While a Protest Poem" indicate. His is a strong and able voice. To read him is to be catapulted out of one's individual shell to enter a host of lives." --X. J. Kennedy, author and editor

2 Axelrod, David B. Home Remedies: New and Selected Poems, 1961-1981
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1982 0893040517 / 9780893040512 First Hard Cover New Good Poetry & Art 5 7/8 x 8 7/8" Bebe Barkan For my grandmother, Esther Kransberg (1882-1862)
"If any poet working in America at present has the power to smash complacency, it is [Axelrod].... If his work is news to you, you're lucky to hold this book in your hand. Here, from several collections now hard to obtain, are some of the most lovely, harrowing, and outrageously funny poems from his first twenty publishing years. For good measure, there is a trove of new work besides." --X. J. Kennedy "David B. Axelrod's New and Selected Poems is a striking and extremely readable book. His title, Home Remedies, reminds me that Stephen Crane thought of his poems as 'pills," medicine, and that William Stafford thinks maybe that each of his own poems is in some way at least a mild protest poem. Axelrod's voice is spare, sharp, always engaging in ways that Crane and Stafford are, and convincing within his own ironies and perceptions These are twenty years of poems here, and this is a welcome book." --Wiliam Heyen
