A. Robert Lee

has just published another volume of poetry:

Imaginarium: Sightings, Galleries, Sightlines

This is his latest collection of poetry and is published by 2Leaf Press.

From the publisher’s website:

The term “imaginarium” refers to a “place” devoted to stimulating and cultivating the imagination, towards scientific, artistic, commercial, recreational, or a spiritual end. In this collection, Lee explores two connecting keynotes: imagination and sight that explores the way we go about imagining as much as seeing reality. Lee goes about this using an ekphrastic approach by commemorating a dozen or so celebrated visual artists and their works, among them J.M.W. Turner and Frida Kahlo. He extends the usual meaning of the term to include vantage-points like a French archeological cave, and then expertly frames a run of personal encounters within the heights and widths of buildings and landscapes.

This is A. Robert Lee’s third recent volume of published poetry. For more about the other two recent volumes – Ars Geographica and Portrait and Landscape – published by Printed Matter Press, click here.

FROM THE BOOK JACKET

Portrait and Landscape
Further Geographies

Portrait and Landscape. Vertical and Horizontal. Two terms used in printing and the visual arts as well as in the general round. In Portrait and Landscape, Further Geographies they double-up again as framing for a gallery of people and place. The portraiture opens with Herman Melville. Ocean-voyager, steersman, diver. In his wake follow personally known writers and a span of friendships and close encounters. Brits, Americans, Europeans, Asians. The landscapes at hand also and equally summon the Atlantic and Pacific. Geo-worlds. Interiors as much as exteriors. Versifications of both site and itinerary.

A. Robert Lee was a Professor in the English department at Nihon University, Tokyo from 1997-20 l l. British-born he previously taught at the University of Kent, UK. His creative work includes Japan Textures: Sight and Word, with Mark Gresham (2007), Tokyo Commute: Japanese Customs and Way of Life Viewed.from the Odakyu Line (2011) and Ars Geographica: Maps and Compasses (2012), also a Printed Matter Press publication. Among his academic publications are Multicultural American Literature: Comparative Black, Native, Latino/a and Asian American Fictions (2003), which won the American Book Award in 2004, and Modern American Counter Writing: Beats, Outriders, Ethnics (2010). He has also published widely on Melville. Currently he lives in Murcia, Spain.
