Named for Leland Hickman’s unfinished, long poem, “Tiresias,” this volume gathers all of the poetry published during Hickman’s lifetime as well as unpublished pieces drawn from his archives at the University of California, San Diego. With this book, Hickman’s innovative, emotional, and absolutely unique confessional verse will join the landscape of twentieth century American experimental poetry.
"Hickman’s testament is visceral, haunting, and generously spread."—Robert Peters, Small Press Review
