Jake Berry

Brambu Drezi is a deep reading of late twentieth-century mind. Along with Black Mountain poetry, Beat poetry is one of its antecedents, and Beat poet John Wieners might well have been prophesying this poem when he wrote, "Poetry is a trance of make-believe...a condition of gradual loss / of reality until there's only left / this shattering of the world." Not to know Berry's work is to miss something essential and stunningly beautiful about the late 20th Century, what has been called a "century of horror," yet Berry, in this great visionary work, mirrors this millennium not only as an end but a beginning.
