NYT Review of Joseph Massey’s Illocality

Stephen Burt of the New York Times reviewed Joseph Massey’s newest publication from Wave Books, Illocality. Burt writes:

A Massey poem is a revelation of place. The first lines resemble horizons, where “sky divides to frame / a version of / a world.” Like a photographer, he knows where the light comes from and where it goes: In “Route 31” he finds “Each strip-mall pennant blurred./ So much ­metal / shoving sun / the sun shoves back.” As in landscape photography, much has happened and much could happen, but we don’t watch as it happens. Nor do we meet people.

Part of Illocality, titled “Thaw Compass”, was published as a chapbook by PressBoardPress in 2013. Since the chapbook quickly sold out, the only way to read “Thaw Compass” is to pick up a copy of Joseph’s newest book!
