Awareness Inside Language is the most comprehensive discussion of poet-artist George Quasha’s “axial poetics” as it plays out in his work of the past twenty years, called “preverbs,” represented in four published volumes: Verbal Paradise, Things Done for Themselves, The Daimon of the Moment, and Glossodelia Attract. In the form of an interview conducted by poet Thomas Fink, it addresses how apparently difficult poetry teaches new ways of reading and thinking.
