“H. L. Hix’s generative, generous anthology renews the poetics of listening. The dialogues between poets and artists seem to ask, in the words of Brian Teare, what kind of language ‘offers clarity sufficient to pain’? One of the most fascinating questions Hix returns to, with a refreshing and buoyant inter-criticality, is whether language adapts consciousness or perception to it or vice versa. ‘Capacious’ is a word he is fond of, and his wide arc of collaborative inquiry into eternity, war, responsiveness and responsibility delivers an expansive one-pointedness. Hix is an able, engaging curator whose book takes time and enriches it.” (Cherry Smyth, poet and curator)
“In Ley Lines, H. L. Hix assembles an array of contemporary poets and visual artists into a single conversation that is at once deeply philosophical, literary, and often times politically subversive. From dialogues on poetics to meditations on how one continues to create in a country (world) of non-stop war, these elegantly curated triads reverberate with collective insights. Ultimately, this compilation reminds readers how closely the act of creating art―written and visual―is linked to the art of listening.” (Glori Simmons, director, Thacher Gallery, University of San Francisco)
