Bright Moments: A Collection of Jazz Poetry (Abraxas #20). Jim Stephens, ed. Poetry and prose. Alvin Aubert, Imamu Amiri Baraka, Jayne Cortez, Victor Hernandez Cruz, Clayton Eshleman, Anselm Hollo, Jack Kerouac, Federico Garcia Lorca, Jack Micheline, Thelonious Monk, Lisel Mueller, Frank O'Hara, Sonia Sanchez, and moreand more. 74 pages, ISBN: 0-932868-03-7, 1980. $15 + $3 (standard) or $5 (expedited) shipping


"An energetic, highly rhythmic oral poetry about jazz, jazz musicians, the jazz experience, Bright Moments lives up to the epiphany of its title. Led off by Stephens's sensitive foreword on the concept and utterance of jazz poetry, the poems themselves jive, jump, run, funk, chant, threaten, and mourn in 'screaming beauty,/ like so many improvisations, solos . . . .' Neither jazz nor poetry fans will be disappointed." (Val Morehouse, ALA Booklist, 15 July 1980)


"The work here is sometimes about jazz, sometimes the thing itself." (Susan Shafarzek, "LJ's Small Press Roundup" Library Journal, 1980)

  1. "Among other delights, this book preserves the theoretical discovery of Actualism. Even today, much American surrealism reads like stodgy translations from the French. The Actualism movement officially published the map of the junction of European surrealism and the American Whitman-Williams-Codrescu barbaric 'this is where I'm at' lineage." (G.P. Skratz, The San Francisco Review of Books, Dec. 1977)

César Vallejo's Trilce. próspero saíz, trans. A 124-page selection of a translation based on the original 1922 edition (published in Peru by Vallejo) and two essays on the translation bound in the issues Abraxas #38/39 and #40/41(listed in 'Back Issues' below). We have attempted to reproduce the original edition, retaining all typographical and linguistic ambiguities, and matching the original typeface as closely as possible. 124 pages, rare, ISBN 0-932868-07-X, 1992. Set: $25 + $3 (standard) or $5.00 (expedited) shipping


  1. “. . . [saíz's] understanding of the poems is unique. . . [he] finds traces of indigenous languages Quechua, Aymara, and believes that syntax is most mangled when Vallejo's maternal tongue tries to speak, that one aspect of Vallejo's assault on the Spanish language was a result of the ongoing battle of the mestizo poet. saíz also keenly recognizes the spoken nature of much of the poetry found in Trilce. His translations are street-wise, contemporary, and demotic."

    (The Underground Forest / La Selva Subterránea #12, May 1995)

  1. "These are serious poems, dealing with ominous and intentionally mysterious-sounding perceptions. . . . this poet is no fashion monger; his treatment of the subject matter is unique, and he manages to avoid both facile didacticism and glib 'myth-making.'" (Ron Slate, Wisconsin Academy Review, March 1977)
