Here is new poetry! Lina Vitkauskas opens new doors with
Shooting Dead Films With Poets - the work is raw and innovative.
Questions are answered as well with this profound verse. This
work fuses postmodern language sensibilities with a new sense of
the contemporary that is accessable to the poet and non-poet alike.
Raymond L. Bianchi
Reading the poetry of Lina ramona Vitkauskas is like entering the ring
of a sparring match. The poems in Shooting Dead Films With Poets
dance - nibble around the imagination with Vitkauskas' sharp and
innovative wordplay. Invoking the lives and impressions of philosophers,
poets, and film stars, Vitkauskas' lines dizzy and delight. She is
a writer to keep our eyes on.
Cave Canem fellow
Featured Poet: 2000 New Voices New Worlds Series
Shooting Dead Films With Poets is an improbable treasure.
These fourteen poems call out to Cocteau and draw from the gamut
spanning Georgic bees and a Chicago found to be antipodal to the
Volga. Subtitles twine immaculately. They involke a Cyrillic voyeur
penning captions for the movie that knows its own Democracy. This
is a run of great poems made great by great lines, a sequence of
gracious acts in which Lina is dropping names like Galileo
dropped the orange.

Lina ramona Vitkauskas writes a class of 'found' poetry that I will dub
'found memory' as she culls the rooms of the poems of the poets
to whom she dedicates and finds word objects that make matter
(body, see Einstein's toes!) out of historical and spatial distance.
Tender, defiant and fun, these poems are making it new.
