I missed this review Grady Harp did of the December 2008 MiPOesias back in July:
Anytime readers get the opportunity to read the sophisticated and highly polished poetry of Matthew Hittinger is a delight. In this series of publications devoted to new poetry and articles analyzing and commenting on poetry with accompanying interviews with the poets themselves published by the very talented Didi Menendez, this issue is a particularly fine one.
Gracing the cover of this edition is the model handsome Matthew Hittinger and inside the book is a terrific introduction to the mind and talent of this young New York poet. In addition to the exceptional works by Hittinger are poems by an array of gifted writers, few of them writing in the ‘traditional sense’ but instead combining creative visual presentation of their words to make artistic wholes.
MiPOesias continues to present fresh and invigorating publications that, when combined with the magazine O&S published by the same team, secures the position at the top of the heap of contributors to the vitality of the arts in America. Read this issue for Matthew Hittinger’s work and become addicted to this periodical.
