Campion’s poetry represents some of the most innovative work for the head, the eye, and the ear. He has developed a new expression for the page–exploring in a coherent and integrated way both the vertical and horizontal. His projected quincunx of book-length works (Tongue Stones, Squaring the Circle, MEDUSA, and Consilience, are completed and now available) bring his ecotropic ideas to bear fully and vividly. Each page is coherent and flows into the whole. Each reading brings new insights and pleasure. Campion has written, designed, and typeset these important works.
