My contributor's copy of Mimesis 2, Summer 2007, arrived while I was in the U.S. in July, so I have only just gotten around to reading it. The highlights for me are "Better to Be Horses," by Salli Shepherd, and "Veress," by Todd Swift, especially the latter: "this is joy, this is a good day."
TS's poem is about Sandor Veress, whose work I can wholeheartedly recommend. Andras Schiff and Heinz Holliger have both recorded wonderful CDs of Veress's music. I first heard Veress's work when Holliger conducted "Hommage à Paul Klee" in Basel with Schiff on piano. It was a breathtaking performance.
Since it was my contributor's copy, the issue also has my work in it: three poems, to be precise: "Reach," "The Baghdad Poet," and the first three "sides" of "A Three-Record Set on a Double CD." It's a pleasure to see my work between such fine poems by Shepherd and Swift.
