-- Here is a poetic text, a selection of choice works from the distinguished poet Robin Ouzman Hislop, whose remarkably alert and surprising lyrics constitute a significant poetic achievement today, in which electronic technology engages the reader doubly, enabling simultaneous reading and hearing of each poem. For Hislop's poetry, this publication is especially effective, as the poet's resonant and almost hypnotic voice brings music and personal emphasis to the texts. For those who have been disappointed by monotonous delivery at poetry readings, Hislop's voice and passion will be a reminder of why poetry exists.

In Moon, Selected Audio Textual Poems,
Robin Ouzman Hislop's selections do it again and again—inner and outer space is explored. In this unique project, where written text is combined simultaneously together with the voice of the author's audio version, listening and reading R.O.H. is to be on a verbal adventure. Words wrap themselves around concepts as the discoveries of inner space; outer space is enlightened by force of deep thought, and expressiveness finds itself young again. Truly, his words take us to a kind of rational, ungilded Oz. Originality, Hislop's work is tomorrow on the moon. Thank the mysteries of existence—and thank Hislop, the poet of tomorrow, whom we are lucky enough to have today.
