A Full Cone

168 pages1 hour


A Full Cone presents the twenty poems from Miles Champion’s 2014 collection, How to Laugh, alongside some thirty pages of new and recent work, and a selection of early poems. 

'It has often been noted that the pace at which Miles Champion’s brilliantly intelligent poems unfold is rapid. Ideas and images tumble into words and the words become present as moments of conceptual or emotional consequence. But, though high velocity is in the making of the poems, there is no swift taking away. The moments aren’t rescinded; the poems are not a demonstration of lyric evanescence. Champion’s work, rather, is about phenomenological consequence, and consequence lingers, lasts. This is a collection of monumental significance—and the work is gorgeous.' Lyn Hejinian
