Alexander Dickow reviews Norman Finkelstein’s most recent book of poetry, From the Files of the Immanent Foundation. Norman Finkelstein is also the author of An Assembly, Scribe, and The Ratio of Reason to Magic, all by Dos Madres Press.
“The back cover of From the Files of the Immanent Foundation quotes from one of the poems, describing the book as
a network of spies and secrets,
an infinite arcanum of hierophants and fools,
residing in a mansion of closets and trapdoors,
stairways and hallways, nested studies surrounding
a library where the scholars sleepwalk forever
and the catalogers despair.”
