THE POETS OF THE PALISADES ARE BACK.

META-LAND: POETS OF THE PALISADES II.

Edited by Paul Nash, Denise La Neve, David Messineo, Susanna Rich, and John J. Trause. Viewed on a geological time scale, poetry is a very recent phenomenon. Paul Nash’s foreword explains the emergence of this exciting new anthology from one of earth’s oldest igneous outcroppings. “After five millennia of recorded history, toward the end of the 20th Century, writers begin to gather together, to coalesce in cafés, libraries and other literary watering holes upon or near the ancient basaltic fastness of the New Jersey Palisades. This post-geological phenomenon has been collectively named 'The Palisades Poetry Movement.' The first anthology by the Poets of the Palisades, Beyond the Rift, was published in 2010, and featured the work of 39 poets from the tri-state area. This new volume, Meta-Land, assembles 121 works by 58 poets, arranged in 11 themed sections. All of the pieces that appear in the anthology are by authors who were featured in the on-going North Jersey Literary Series held at the Classic Quiche Café in Teaneck, New Jersey, between 2010 and 2015. This collection delves deeply into our ‘metaperceptions:’ how we see ourselves, the universe, and what we question, feel or think. Diverse voices that represent a modern world of both natural beauty and cosmopolitan sophistication explore the fundamental nature of reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason and mind. We find ourselves in a ‘Meta-Land,’ where symbols of symbols are nested like matryoshkas, and meaning's reach extends past all horizons.” Published July 2016.
