Linda Russo's "Of the relational local: A resurgence of ecopoetics post-conference 'plenary'" in Jacket2

"Drawing attention to the relational local (with bodies, culture, community, landscape, and ecosystem as site), not content with describing the shapes and ways and effects of settler-dominant knowledges and environments, attending affectively, through inquiry, to what may be otherwise overlooked, developing new forms of attention – in these ways, contemporary poets intervene."
Thankful to be included in Linda Russo's "Of the relational local: A resurgence of ecopoetics post-conference 'plenary'" conversation at Jacket2 alongside Matthew Cooperman, Adam Dickinson, Megan Kaminski, Brenda Sieczkowski, Anna Lena Phillips Bell, Sarah de Leeuw, Michelle Detorie, Heidi Lynn Staples, and Rita Wong.

Stunned by the arrival of Every Living One amidst snow melt this afternoon! ! ! I am incredibly grateful to Jen Tynes and horse less press for giving it a home, David Ruhlman for the use of his gorgeous handmade book, "Felt" (2004), for the cover, and Alban Fischer's innovate design work. 
Paul Naylor has said, "In Every Living One, Nathan Hauke, like Ronald Johnson, works the compost heap left by the New England Transcendentalists—Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau all leave traces throughout this careful, delicate, yet tough-minded book. Hauke’s world is—as it should be—a more broken, more littered world than his predecessors, a world composed of as much consumer debris as natural beauty. And it’s to our benefit that Hauke has the tenacity and integrity not to turn his back on either, allowing him to take us to the numinous edge of perception: ‘There is must be a higher origin of.’ Every Living One explores the isn’t as much as the is of that possible higher origin, all while facing directly the sorrows of death and poverty haunting everyday life; yet beneath that layer of sorrow we find at the book’s core a ‘Raw knot of gratitude.’ That gratitude comes through on each page of this compelling book.”

Thrilled to be able to reveal the cover my new book, EVERY LIVING ONE (Horse Less Press, 2015). Thanks again to Jen Tynes and Horse Less Press for giving it a home! Thanks to David Ruhlman for the use of his gorgeous handmade book, "Felt" (2004), for the cover, and thanks to Alban Fischer for his visionary design work. 

You can preorder EVERY LIVING ONE at Horse Less Press alongside Nikki Wallschlaeger's HOUSES, Sara Peck and Jared Joseph's here you are, and Anne Cecelia Holmes' The Jitters. 

Early praise::

“To show and to affirm the image of the world is a rash act anymore, as nowadays we read and write for colorless grammarians. Nathan Hauke, thank heaven, is a rash man, a poet who loves the precipice he finds in every image and in his mind’s eye. He is the glad captive of a good world and of its graces. Every Living One tells the bright, bright story of that captivity.”
—Donald Revell

“This book of poetry is an active remembering. ‘But who / can say the order of things,’ asks the poet, along with Michel Foucault. See the clear and precarious moments of sun and snow, the world of industry and nature, the poignancy of human nature. ‘Addicted to language,’ Hauke’s cutting edge tracks thought’s shining immediacy.”
—Norma Cole

“In Every Living One, Nathan Hauke, like Ronald Johnson, works the compost heap left by the New England Transcendentalists—Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau all leave traces throughout this careful, delicate, yet tough-minded book. Hauke’s world is—as it should be—a more broken, more littered world than his predecessors, a world composed of as much consumer debris as natural beauty. And it’s to our benefit that Hauke has the tenacity and integrity not to turn his back on either, allowing him to take us to the numinous edge of perception: ‘There is must be a higher origin of.’ Every Living One explores the isn’t as much as the is of that possible higher origin, all while facing directly the sorrows of death and poverty haunting everyday life; yet beneath that layer of sorrow we find at the book’s core a ‘Raw knot of gratitude.’ That gratitude comes through on each page of this compelling book.”
—Paul Naylor

“What if the secret heart of rural America were a still waiting, an all-but-silent psalm? These lyrics are delicate, involuted fossils of a trance-like attention that somehow does not exclude chronic underemployment, neighbors up on assault charges, and other vicissitudes of contemporary rural living. In the tradition of C.D. Wright, besmilr brigham, and perhaps Lorine Niedecker above all, these are poems ‘learning the mirror and field guide,’ becoming ‘a process of mapping’—not just of place, but also of being-in-place, an angled consciousness that pares itself away even as the lines all but dissolve on the reader’s sympathetic eye-tongue.”
—G.C. Waldrep
