Trance Archive draws on over twenty years of Joron's work, from his early science fiction poetry to his later fusion of surrealist romanticism and avant-garde materialism, into what he calls speculative lyric. Infused with radical politics, Joron's poetry takes inspiration from chaos and complexity theory, and reflects personal associations ranging from anarchist philosopher Paul Feyerabend to surrealist mystic Philip Lamantia.

Joron is one of the most engaging contemporary poets. An avowed surrealist in the old sense, and theorist of same, Joron creates atmospheric little echo-chambers of language. His work, since his beginnings as a 'sci-fi poet' (whatever that is), has always had a speculative edge, and this is sometimes a bit overblown, but in general his work holds up to a high standard. My only complaint, really, is a bit of an over-reliance on sound permutation, that is, strings of similar sounding words passed off as profundity. Its fun sometimes, but gets old quickly. I DO think, however, that Joron will continue to be one of our most original and provocative poets.

Poet Andrew Joron is probably becoming familiar to more mainstream poetry readers with a small featuring of his work in American Hybrid: A Norton Anthology of New Poetry, a collection which has opened the floodgates of the truly experimental for the non-initiated. I can't say exactly what it is that draws one into his mysterious, liminal world. A few lines were enough to get me very interested in what he's doing: "A transparent pyramid sings/To greet the morning/We flow & shudder in our dream pools/Spiky tendrils/Wound tight around communication-coils."

The work is centered around (to make an underhanded Simon and Garfunkel reference) the sound of silence. In each poem the complacency of so much poetry is given a thrashing. Joron is not interested in who, what, where, or his childhood. He is trying to make sense of what it means have a poetic vocation in a universe that has the distinctive sound of John Cage drizzling about it with a few noisy punctuations here and there. He's been defined as a surrealist poet, a science fiction poet, a speculative lyricist, yet somehow his inverted verse seems to transcend all these labels. I don't pretend to understand everything he writes any more than I'd try to pretend I understand a piece of music by Brian Eno. This is the poetry of internal experience and a restless searching for what really happened after the Big Bang. Recommended.
