 About the Book 

Bill Knott has to be the only poet who can claim to have been for nearly forty years now at the head of both the avant-garde and the rear-garde of American poetry. Meticulous and formal, yet wildly inventive, Knott is among the very finest poetsMoreBill Knott has to be the only poet who can claim to have been for nearly forty years now at the head of both the avant-garde and the rear-garde of American poetry. Meticulous and formal, yet wildly inventive, Knott is among the very finest poets living today. Paired perfectly with his poems is the surreal and oddly beautiful world of Star Black s collages. Stigmata Errata Etcetera is a book that brings absurdity and wit into clear focus, reverberating with Knott s unique blend of heartrending humor and Black s playful and passionate imagery. As Doty writes, These two not-so-different sorts of creation together point back to the mystery of origins: the new arises, out of its polyglot beginnings, one unlikely thing rubbing up against another. Found things, assembled with the strange freshness of the ordering eye or ear, bring new and distinct presences into the world.
