Ecstatic and obsessive, the prose poems that make up Oliver de la Paz's Post Subject: A Fable, reveal the monuments of a lost country. Through a series of epistles addressed to Empire, a catalog emerges, where what can be tallied is noted in a ledger, what can be claimed is demarcated, and what has been reaped is elided. The task of deposing the late century is taken up. What's salvaged from the remains is humanity.
Oliver de la Paz is the author of two previous collections of poetry: Names Above Houses and Furious Lullaby. A recipient of grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Artist Trust, he is the co-chair of the advisory board for Kundiman.org. He teaches English at Western Washington University.
