A collection of new and selected poems by Maureen Seaton

With its striking new sequences of charmed mathematics and magical equations with their surreal violences and tragicomedic human predicaments, Fibonacci Batman: New & Selected Poems spans two decades and seven previous poetry collections (five award-winning) by two-time “Lammy” recipient, Maureen Seaton. Language is key in Seaton’s poetry, called “radiantly precise” (Publishers Weekly) and “able to evoke the feeling of vast expanses of space and time, much like Borges in ‘The Library of Babel’” (Adam Miller). Poet Wang Ping praises the “dark matter” in Seaton’s work, “where everything expands and tricks, arriving at once and everywhere.” Marilyn Hacker writes: “Maureen Seaton's register is enormous; her verbal daring and wayfaring breathtaking.” This is twenty years of rich poetry to fall into and to trust. "What a large, fierce vision is documented here!” (Tom Andrews) Fibonacci Batman arrives on time and in style, giving hope in human imagination and evolution a healthy and engaging slap on the back.
