We are happy to announce the arrival of Nightwood Editions’ latest collection, Zeppelin, by Blaise Moritz. In Blaise’s second collection, we are passengers in the long-range ghost ship that is our new millennial culture. The time before technology recedes in our wake—the past an amazing clutter, if only as deep as early modern things—and looking forward, our impressions phase constantly. We travel far, seeing much that is strange, but it seems more enervating than thrilling, always subordinate to the constant narrative of crisis.
Blaise Moritz lives in Toronto, Ontario. His poems have appeared widely in Canadian literary journals and he is the author of Crown and Ribs (Fitzhenry and Whiteside, 2007). His website is blaisemoritz.com.
