About Hammertown

"Peter Culley's Hammertown is experimental at its core — check the particle–accelerator serial mash of "Snake Eyes" — and, strangely, beautifully, classical on either wing of the triptych (or gatefold LP cover), as the poet deftly mixes modes and methods — a sustained lyricism shot through with riffs epistolary, pastoral, elegiac; leavened with sincere homage; ventilated by epic–ironic gestures. And then there are complete surprises, such as the doses of "tumbling verse"
