A Full Cone is Miles Champion’s second Carcanet volume. It features a substantial body of new work as well as a selection of earlier writing. “It has often been noted that the pace at which Miles Champion’s brilliantly intelligent poems unfold is rapid. Ideas and images tumble into words and the words become present as moments of conceptual or emotional consequence. But, though high velocity is in the making of the poems, there is no swift taking away. The moments aren’t rescinded; the poems are not a demonstration of lyric evanescence. Champion’s work, rather, is about phenomenological consequence, and consequence lingers, lasts. This is a collection of monumental significance—and the work is gorgeous.” —Lyn Hejinian
