The Bitter Oleander Press
About this Publisher
The Bitter Oleander Press has been providing the poetry reading public with a highly deep-image driven poetry since 1974. We publish those works whose imaginations open our eyes to a world we thought we knew but were mistaken. A world our habits, our education and our beliefs blind us from everyday. We believe in bringing our readers and writers face to face with each other, with the reality of our uncommon world, like the one that exists in grape seeds blown by hurricanes into hidden corners doors form when closed. We publish well-known, little known and unknown poets and writers side by side. Published in English, most if not all of our translations include their originals. We demand a serious poetry. A poetry devoid of clichés and predictable twists of well-worn or entrenched truths. We prefer a heightened music driven by a profound linguistic rhythm. Books we also publish pursue this identical purpose making us ever vigilant in our search for poets whose perception and language are so unique they beg not to be missed.
