Will Alexander seeks a unified-all-inclusive art theory in Compression & Purity

|
()
The poems in Will Alexander's new book Compression & Purity coalesce into an ever-shifting identity.

Compression and Purity works well as an introduction to Alexander's black surrealist oeuvre while still engaging and challenging his longtime readers. Though emotionally cold and detached, the poems more than make up for it with a genuine love of language and its power to effect change.
