Using lyrical language, repetition and abstraction, King retells the Odyssey representing the original characters as surface icons who move in and out of the first person. Implicating the reader in the action of war, King reforms the epic. Printed in an edition of 250 with color plates by artist Brian McNearney. Now out of print, CLOPS is available as part of Kenning Editions’ collection of King’s short work, There Three.
“King’s book handles repetition in a way that excites me more than I’ve been able to be excited by repetition before.” — Jac Jemc, html giant.
“Because time is a ghost, I must wait for it to come, and so to speak about what understanding(s) are to come, would be to ask the ghost to come too soon…” — Devin King in Requited.
