Welcome to Korrektiv Press!

Korrektiv Press is a once-fledgling (now floundering and you might even say flourishing) enterprise that rose from the primordial soup of a blog inspired by the spirit of Kierkegaard and Walker Percy. (The press takes its name from Kierkegaard’s effort to provide a “korrektiv” to Hegel’s philosophy of world-historical forces, asserting against those forces the significance and worth of the individual.) Korrektiv, the blog, appeared in 2004 and has featured the writing of a variety of real and pseudonymous authors: some poets, some fictionists, some essayists—but nearly all of them self-identified as more or less bad Catholics afflicted with the desire to write and to inflict those writings upon the world.

Tulips for Elsie: Poems by Jonathan Potter

Tulips for Elsie cover image

Mr. Potter’s given us a bold adventurous book with plenty of sharp turns at high speed, with some gestures toward Neruda and Merwin but also “Sk8,” a gr8 skateboarding poem, and sonnets, and brave ventures into rhymed verse, poems for friends and relatives, “Stopping by Blogs on a Frosty Evening,” and poems of passionate love with angels looking down from above. Plus tulips and Elsie.
