Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In this epic poem, Paul Nelson re-enacts the history of Auburn, Washington, originally known as the town of Slaughter. Written in the spirit of William Carlos Williams, Charles Olson, and Michael McClure, A Time Before Slaughter explores the history of this Northwestern place from the myths of Native people to the xenophobia toward Japanese-Americans, from the urge to control to the hunger for liberation. Set against the backdrop of a towering dormant volcano (Mt. Rainier), the beauty of the verse pays homage to the beauty of the place. Here's one more big hunk of the American shoulder, said poet Michael McClure. As Olson carved his from the North East, Nelson takes his from the Pacific North West. It's beautiful time-space in new words.
