Pitched partway between multivalent modern Orphic hymnal and satiric devastation of the Internet age's spiritual emptiness, Divorce Procedures for the Hairdressers of a Metallic and Inconstant Goddess, Justin Isis's poetry debut, combines discordant rhythms, fragmented multilingual sampling and deliriously surreal imagery to create a crosscultural assault on boredom, a pagan invocation of divine progenitive forces: Lawrentian goddesses of the blood glimpsed through a Situationist lens of anarchic eroticism and vandalizing humor. A Mystery Rite in rhyme for the terminally distracted and a trenchant breviary of the lightning age to come.
Walter "Walt" Whitman (1819 - 1892) was an American poet, essayist and journalist. A humanist, he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. Whitman's work breaks the boundaries of poetic form and is generally prose-like. He also used unusual images and symbols in his poetry, including rotting leaves, tufts of straw, and debris. He also openly wrote about death and sexuality, including prostitution. He is often labeled as the father of free verse, though he did not invent it. Whitman wrote in the preface to the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass, "The proof of a poet is that his country absorbs him as affectionately as he has absorbed it." He believed there was a vital, symbiotic relationship between the poet and society. This connection was emphasized especially in "Song of Myself" by using an all-powerful first-person narration. As an American epic, it deviated from the historic use of an elevated hero and instead assumed the identity of the common people. Leaves of Grass also responded to the impact that recent urbanization in the United States had on the masses.
