We here at Fact-Simile Editions are honored to announce that yet another one of our poetic heroes has joined the poetry trading card team. This month's card features new work from Language poet, essayist, translator and publisher Lyn Hejinian.
Perhaps best known for her groundbreaking work My Life
(Burning Deck 1980) Lyn Hejinian has been helping to enrich and
redefine the boundaries of contemporary literature for the better part
of four decades. Most recently with the release of The Book of a Thousand Eyes (Omnidawn 2012) and Saga/Circus (Omnidawn 2008)
This new poem (Abandon) by Lyn Hejinian is featured on the back of May's Poetry Trading Card from Fact-Simile Editions. These super limited-edition poetic collectibles are printed on recycled paper and available for just 99 cents on our website.
Subscriptions to the entire 2012 series are just $10 plus shipping and, as always, our 2010 and 2011 Poetry Trading Cards are still available individually or as a complete set.
