Welcome to the LNB website. Here you will find not only information
about our publications, but also a calendar of news and events
that will alternate with an ongoing discussionof the kinds of art and writing we admire.
Paradoxically, the words and pictures that appear on the site’s
electronically generated pages describe three-dimensional objects
made of paper and ink you may purchase to read and hold in your hands.
Yet these seemingly abstract screen images are not so unlike the content of our books:
Painting and the printed poem are also products of the imagination,
fashionings of a lyrical universe on a two-dimensional plane.
And just as abstract painting is not the duplication of an image
but the recording of a perception, for us poetry is not
the verbal formulation of an idea or an emotion so much as
an attempt to recreate in language the experience of thinking and feeling.
