I'm usually wary of poetry collection that present themselves as a project, but Presto Agitato has provided Schmuhl with a form rather than the trap of subject matter, and so each "definition" moves in it own direction. Each term is defined twice, and before each one, the book provides an onion skin page with an artistic representation of the movement. What we have then, is a beautiful edition of these fine fine prose poems.
