Jason Bredle's poems approach the world like a haunted cat approaches a glacier, curious and itchy with strangeness. In Carnival, he skates paratactically between states of being: levity, heart-holes, licks of darkness, lovesickness and werewolfishness. Bredle's gift as a poet is to traverse and re-traverse one looking glass in ten different moods. When he goes through it, we are taken.
Jason Bredle is the author of The Book of Evil (Dream Horse Press, 2011), Smiles of the Unstoppable (Magic Helicopter Press, 2011), Class Project (Publishing Genius Press, 2010), Pain Fantasy (Red Morning Press, 2007), Standing in Line for the Beast (New Issues, 2007), and A Twelve Step Guide (New Michigan Press, 2004).
