              Between the discovery that there is a design which only his poetry enables him to find as he confronts the world and the discovery that such a design is a snare, merely a means of keeping him from further discernment, Michael Rosen is wedged, is productively pinioned, [ should sa...y, for it is just this pressure--of meaning discerned on one hand and of meaning distrusted on the other--which makes the tension of these poems, a new version of the old wars between mind and body, memory and hope, self and surround. How tender and inclusive are Rosen's preoccupations, and how disabused his conclusions! One reads these playful, stricken poems with wonder--how will such ventures conclude, or even persist? What will happen next? Here is a poet who persuades us, as the saying goes, to stay tuned. --Richard Howard Originally published in 1985.

              Leaping from the Eiffel Tower in a wingsuit. Scaling Shanghai Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings. Camping on the roof of Philadelphia's abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. These scenarios are real examples of the recreational activity of place hacking: climbing, wading..., jumping, or even ironing your way into prohibited or obscure spaces. Why do people do it? Is it the exhilaration of trespassing? Is it discovering a new perspective? Is it roving through your surroundings in an unpredictable manner? Place hackers say it's all these thingsand more. In Place Hacking: Venturing Off Limits, Michael J. Rosen explores the experience and mindset behind place hacking.
