"The supernova blaze of Adam Cornford's poetry fuses surrealism, science, politics, and eros to yield exotic particles of meaning rarely found on Earth. Cornford's vision, like that of Blake, overleaps the dark Satanic mills of commodity culture to discover a utopia that can only be configured by radical imagery. Here, language becomes a 'semiotic multiverse' proliferating toward an emancipated future. With this long-awaited major collection, Cornford affirms his place among that visionary company of poets empowered to chant the re-enchantment of word and world."

–Andrew Joron

"Adam Cornford's Lalia is his latest lingual spell that burns as a protracted anti-acrostic, as a book-length compendium psycho-geologic in demeanor. These poems seem to writhe as spells kinetic with all manner of exploration, all the while suffused with an interior skill-set susurrant via a penetrant grammar. Indeed, Lalia ignites an inner syllabus absorbing ripples from a Blakean cosmos that seem on the surface opaque with vatic inscription, yet all the while dazzling with lingual texture as vision."
