Like last month, we are excited to offer a 30% discount on an MIT Press title to our blog readers (when purchased through the MIT Press website). Today's 30 percent-off Friday pick also launches our National Poetry Month celebration--be sure to check back for a poem every Friday through the month of April!
Our April discount pick is I Am a Beautiful Monster: Poetry, Prose, and Provocation by Francis Picabia and translated by Marc Lowenthal. Francis Picabia (1879-1953), painter and poet, was a leading figure in the Dada movement.
Follow this link, which will automatically apply the discount, to get your copy of I Am a Beautiful Monster. *In the (unlikely) event that the discount doesn't appear when you click the link, have no fear--simply manually enter the discount code "IBMFRI12" in the shopping cart to get the discount.*
You see, I’m crazy to think it
I am a man with nimble fingers
Who wants to cut the threads of old sorrows
False folds of my worried brain
Stories in arabesque memories
I’m only happy on the open sea
Where you go farther
On anonymous waves.
