Product Description

Scherzos Benjyosos is a set of four poems, scherzos in prosimetrical blocks, a comical, wild, and delirious sifting through the carnage of the financial crash, the dreamscapes of capitalist infancy, histories of sadism and persecution, the fetish bars of canonical literature, and the psychoanalysis of grass. The book also includes “Sinking Feeling,” Sutherland’s long poem from 2017, described by J. H. Prynne as “breathtakingly lovely, and desperate, racked with desire to become truthful love.”

Edition of 600

Some reviews of other books by Keston Sutherland:

“[Hot White Andy] is the most remarkable poem in English published this century… A possible poetic future starts here.”
—Jacket Magazine

“The most unsettling but also authentically hopeful account of what it is to be human now.”
—3:AM on The Odes to TL61P

“Immediately takes its place among the most essential works of literature in English in this new millennium.”
—Chicago Review on Poetical Works 1999 –2015

“[‘Sinking Feeling’] moves like a piece of music through recursive and repeated moments, shifting and developing its described and conceptual spaces, its logics of representation, and its narrative. The thinking it follows is not always easy, but the disorienting effect on the reader is exhilarating because of the intellectual and emotional space it opens up as you try to follow it.”
—London Review of Books
