Announcing "The Great Wheel" by Cal Kinnear in paperback

Annie Brule

Chatwin is pleased to announce its third poetry title this year, The Great Wheel: Zero the Un-Naming by Cal Kinnear. Decades in the writing, The Great Wheel is a compelling blend of poetry, prose, and the author's own translations of Heraclitus and other seminal poets.

This is Kinnear's fifth book, delving into the power of language both to clarify and to obscure the meanings of things, and unraveling the essence of whole paradigms of human thought. The text itself pushes against the bounds of language and defies words to do more than we often ask of them. As author Randy Barnes describes it, the book is "...not so much a statement about where poetry comes from as it is an inside-view of poetry becoming itself, happening Now, Unfolding on the page before us." 

Kinnear tackles ideas and concepts from the inception of Western thought through our present day. A rich trove for readers of poetry, serious scholars, and students ready to apprentice themselves to the poetic arts.
