Angle Review

April 4, 2014


From Angela France‘s review of Coelacanth in the latest issue (5) of Angle, a journal of poetry written in English.

“Rick Mullin takes the reader beyond the frame of what is known about the subject and uses language, rhythm, allusions, and metaphor to pose questions and trigger explorations…. This collection is rich with interest, crafted with skill, a poet’s attention to sound, and a painter’s attention to detail. Mullin has a gentle, dry wit which brings charm to the poems and an endearing self deprecation which denies any pretentiousness.”

Here you find the Complete Angle review.

David Rosenthal hosts a very good series for formal poetry at St. Alban’s Church, a beautiful performance space in Albany, CA, which is near Oakland and Berkeley. I was the featured reader for April. Here are some clips, including poems from Coelacanth, a reading at the open mic by Gwynn O’Gara, and an onstage interview with David.
