Great Regulars: Feng Sun Chen writes poems that occupy the

no-place of utopia; they unfold nowhere and everywhere all at once. These are stories we think we know, or must have heard, or believe ourselves at least capable of overhearing, though in fact (even, for instance, when they imaginatively trace the life and times of Grendel of Beowulf) they are entirely fabular and, perhaps, entirely metaphysical as well. Symbol, allegory, archetype, abstract and associative imagery: these are the building-blocks that top Chen's landscapes.
