David McCooey launches John Kinsella’s ‘Graphology Poems’

‘”Graphology” puts in train any number of Kinsella-esque concerns: identity, authenticity, memory, place, representation, power, and textuality itself. Facsimiles of handwriting, doodles, and even scribble, can be found in these pages, but even more notable, more ‘telling’, are the poetic images of the vast material history of writing found here.’

Many thanks to David McCooey for his wonderful launch speech, the full text of which can be read here.

Graphology Poems: 1995–2015 can be purchased here.
