Great Regulars: In short, [Brian] Blanchfield understands

craft as a means to an end rather than an end-in-itself (the latter folly being, unfortunately, endemic to most young writing, just as it is endemic to most poorly-run workshops). A hint of the poetics undergirding Not Even Then can be found in the section-title "Weremen," which besides exhibiting yet another slice of poetic craft--the pun--also hints at an abiding interest in hybridity, in the same sort of between-state implied by the title's collection.
