The Life and Opinions of DJ Spinoza
Author: Eugene Ostashevsky
Illustrator: Eugene Timerman
Publisher: Ugly Duckling Presse (2008)
The Life and Opinions of DJ Spinoza is a cycle of fast, tragic, unsettling, hilarious poems about the shortcomings of reason. Eugene Ostashevsky’s book responds to The Ethics of the seventeenth-century philosopher B. Spinoza, a work that seeks to construct an axiomatic system that is a theory of everything in a natural form of language with all its inconsistencies and ambivalence.
"You're not going to find too many poetry collections that are this action-packed."
