Basso – Accidental Monsters

Accidental Monsters: Poems & Texts, 1976
Poems & Texts, 1976 by Eric Basso. Trade paperback. Published 1 November 1998.

Completed in six months, on the eve of the poet's twenty-ninth birthday, Accidental Monsters was Eric Basso's first collection of poems. The author of the critically acclaimed Golem Triptych carries us through a world where landscapes and interiors merge, a terrain vague of fleeting visions, gnomic adventures, enigmas, grotesque creatures, and bizarre mechanisms. We eventually journey to an unnamed planet, and are witness to several sinister tableaux. This is a poetry of convergences, set in the time-warp which traps that disquieting moment between the dream and the awakening.
