About this item
Poetry. Art. Color photographs by the author. Rick Mullin's TRANSOM is a poet's odyssey through the year 2016 set primarily in the financial district of Manhattan. The poems are written in a 15-line sonnet variant of Mullin's device, a form called the Third Sancerre. With views of the city from the docks at Hoboken's Lackawanna Terminal, from the top deck of the Ferry Stevens, and from the city's oldest streets—there are a few excursions to such places as Lake Charles, LA; Ithaca, NY; Cape May, NJ; and Cologne,Germany—TRANSOM logs the portents, "public and personal," of a transitional year. As X. Ray Burns wrote, "Public or personal, every situation, every moment of every day is a puzzle of beauty and ugliness. This goes generally unperceived or ignored by the masses. Mullin deciphers what most only observe."
