Maintenant #64: Željko Mitić

Whether birthed in collaboration or contradiction with its culture, a nation like Serbia is bound to produce iconoclastic and intractable poets. In Željko Mitić, the new Serbia has found a poet that speaks with a vitality and energy few can match, and in whom a generation has found representation. One of the very most exciting and imperative writers emerging in Europe, Mitić is a critic, a poet, a persona and his work is intense, humourous, satirical and pointed. With Zvonko Karanovic and Ana Božičević, he is amongst the many fantastic poets emerging from the Balkans in the new millenium, who are piece by piece overturning the proprietorial dominance of formal poetry and forcing themselves into recognition. A poet truly representative of the spirit of the Maintenant series, we welcome Željko Mitić as our 64th edition.


Accompanying the interview are twelve of Željko’s poems.


18s edited by Mark Cobley review

Colin Herd reviews at 3 am magazine:
From Raymond Queneau’s audacious sequence Hundred Thousand Billion Poems to Jerome Rothenberg’s radical reimagining of the Hebrew Mystic number system in Vienna Blood, Ronald Johnson’s 99-section long poem ARK, Ron Silliman and Inger Christensen’s use of the Fibonacci sequence and Jackson Mac Low’s systematic ‘diastic’ poems, numbers and counting have been an important structural element in the work of many of the Twentieth Century’s most radical and experimental poetics. With potential for chance procedures, and taking the poem’s structural locus away from the subjective perspective, numerical systems and constraints have often slicked the engines of what William Carlos Williams famously called ‘machines made of words.’


Richard Barrett’s Sidings reviewed

“This is a coal-fired collection with its roots in romanticism. Barrett is as fascinated by place and landscape as Wordsworth or Coleridge, but his is an urban, post-industrial pastoral. For Lake Windermere, read the Manchester Ship Canal; for the opium den, read the fast food outlet; for the storm scoured heath, read the corporate courtyard.”

Tom Jenks interviewed by 3 AM magazine

An indepth interview in 3 AM magazine conducted by Stephen Fowler. Excerpt below, link to article and extract from * Tom’s next collection which’ll be published in the next few months by if p then q

‘it quickly struck me how almost everybody was ploughing the same few acres. I became more and more interested in doing things in a different way. I started to experiment with form and with space, using the page as a canvas rather than simply a frame. I began to incorporate images and found text and moved beyond using the computer as a typewriter, exploring the potential information technology offers for the production of texts. I wouldn’t say that I had done any more than scratch the surface in this regard so far, but it is something I remain committed to.’
