“Sequence of Nature Past the Via Mala / La Sequenza della Natura Passa la Via Mala” Edition in English and Italian translation Introduction by Jack Hirschman (Read some of Jack Hirschman’s excerpts below) Published by Whirlwind Press summer 2011, lamont b. steptoe, 2nd publication of Dave Steel’s work. “The technique of Dave Steel’s compositions is what first engaged me. He seems to have arrived at his style of writing not so much under the influence of any particular poet (he mentions Robert Bly and Bob Kaufman as American poets whom he loves reading; otherwise he’d read many Europeans), and seemed not to have read Charles Olson deeply at all, though it was an Olsonic manner in his idiom that first called his work to my atten- tion. That manner is resonant to a letter Olson wrote to Cid Corman in the 1950s, to the effect that an American poet MUST BEGIN WITH NOTHING, THE BLANK PAGE, almost as a goad of emptiness, and from that confrontation really begin. THEN the possibility might emerge wherein the poet might discover—in the mix of the conscious- ness of the transfer of energies from without with the moil of self and heart-soul within—his own unique way of saying. Steel’s style is a staccato, almost at times telegrammatic one, in which he finds room to inform, comment and at the same time abbreviate so that as one gets deeper into the book one finds that one is genially identifying with his idiomatic technique of evoking by way of setting down a series of images and making a tight bit of music.” – Jack Hirschman, March 2011
