Poetry African American Studies Ed Roberson s eighth full length book of poetry THE NEW WING OF THE LABYRINTH is a taut intricately interwoven series of poems that present an unsentimental yet harrowing encounter with the finality of life where do we go but to die into immunity in this life the thousand deaths that evolve us As Michael Palmer has written Ed Roberson offers us up front the nerve edge of poetic speech sequences of the unanticipated as poetry of real significance is meant to do, Poetry African American Studies Ed Roberson might no longer live in Pittsburgh but the city in which he was born and raised still leaves its fragmented structures etched throughout his poetry A city of hard work and hard times the now impoverished neighborhoods that had at one time stood as centers of jazz and art the hills the rivers the skyscraping iron and steel and the pain Though most of the poems in this collection do not necessarily take place in Pittsburgh there is a rhythmic fragmentation here painting portraits of urban life in general Beauty music poverty blood and concrete seem to live within the line breaks while breath stopping pauses halt you just long enough so that like at a smoky backroom jazz club you can t wait to see what he does next, There is no one else like Ed RobersonOCocertainly there is no other poet like him His is an oblique eccentric totally fascinating talent Because of these qualities it may seem that he is difficult to followOCoas Ornette Coleman or Gabriel Garc a Mirquez or Romare Beardon seems difficult to track at times But his strength of vision is always evident the quickness and inclusiveness of his voice can sweep a reader along into new and refreshing areas Roberson s poetic moves are not tricks or affected traits They are artistic and deeply considered techniques Reading the two basic cycles of this elliptical and intriguing work could be likened to reading Ezra Pound or a more deliberate and lyrically touched Charles Olson but with an unanchored allusiveness of things largely American taking the place of the Chinese and the Mayan Roberson creates that rare combination of sophistication and simplicity which defines truly significant poetry In this new work he makes the variety of our culture dance from his very special viewpoint, C D Wright has described Roberson s work as lyric poetry of meticulous design and lasting emotional significance comparing its musical qualities to the work of saxophonist Steve Lacy jazz pianist Thelonious Monk and composer Johann Sebastian Bach
