Abatis was published from 1983-1986.

It was preceded by Poetry Review published 1964-1971, UT Review published 1972-1982, and succeeded by Tampa Review published 1988-present:

IMMANENTISM: The exterior makes the interior. The interior makes the exterior. The object makes the subject. The subject makes the object. Ultimately, a fusion--no exterior, no object, no subject, no otherness, no self--only a state of being beyond the conscious and the unconscious, the superconscious. From the superconsciousness emerges the mystic words. The mystic words are the immanentist poem.
