"There is a relentless generosity to Joseph Donahue's newest collection, as seeming everything can find its place among the contours of his poetry. By turns worldly and visionary, "Red Flash on a Black Field" accommodates Charles Olsen and David Lynch, Nietzsche and a theology bursting from pure, luminous words of radical intent. In the hands of this consummate craftsman "consciousness is a continual fire" and the world of words is ablaze." SUSAN HOWE
