Another South is an anthology of poetry from contemporary southern writers who are working in forms that are radical, innovative, and visionary. Highly experimental and challenging in nature, the poetry in this volume, with its syntactical disjunctions, formal revolutions, and typographic playfulness, represents the direction of a new breed of southern writing that is at once universal in its appeal and regional in its flavor.

This anthology is a collection of experimental poets in the South. Joel Dailey’s vicious satire of pop culture’s inanities and (far worse, as he considers them equal) poetry’s profundities, isn’t containable in any of the traditional academic corrals. Sandy Baldwin’s and Alex Rawls’s digitally assisted narratives call into question the identity of the author and the whole concept of writing. Christy Sheffield Sanford’s typographically enhanced historical narrative sympathetically examines narrative itself but with enough severity t.

Another South is an anthology of poetry from contemporary southern writers who are working in forms that are radical, innovative, and visionary. Highly experimental and challenging in nature, the poetry in this volume, with its syntactical disjunctions, formal revolutions, and typographic playfulness, represents the direction of a new breed of southern writing that is at once universal in its appeal and regional in its flavor.  Focusing on poets currently residing in the South, the anthology includes both emerging and established voices in the national and international literary world. From the invocations of Andy Young's "Vodou Headwashing Ceremony" to the blues-informed poems of Lorenzo Thomas and Honorée Jeffers, from the different voicings of )ohn Lowther and Kalamu ya Salaam to the visual, multi-genre art of Jake Berry, David Thomas Roberts, and Bob Grumman, the poetry in Another South is rich in variety and enthusiastic in its explorations of new ways to embody place and time. These writers have made the South lush with a poetic avant-garde all its own, not only redefining southern identity and voice but also offering new models of what is possible universally through the medium of poetry.  Hank Lazer's introductory essay about "Kudzu textuality" contextualizes the work by these contemporary innovators. Like the uncontrollable runaway vine that entwines the southern landscape, their poems are hyperfertile, stretching their roots and shoots relentlessly, at once destructive and regenerative. In making a radical departure from nostalgic southern literary voices, these poems of polyvocal abundance are closer in spirit to "speaking in tongues" or apocalyptic southern folk art—primitive, astonishing, and mystic.

An exciting and innovative work -- as the title suggests, it reaches, much more so than other anthologies I can think of. A neglected field of avant-garde poetry, including mathematekus, illustrated poems, surrealistic poems, funny poems -- and nothing like one expects from poetry. Of course, this reach does not always result in the best work -- sometimes experimentation is only, after all, experimentation. Still, all in all, very interesting.
