and New. The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations Millennium General Assembly was constructed by James Hampton (1909–1964), a janitor for the General Services Administration, over a fourteen-year period from 1950 until the time of his death, after which it was discovered in a garage he rented near his apartment in Washington, . Made of scavenged materials, minutely.

His poetry has been collected in the volume The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations Millennium General Assembly. He is the recipient of a Lannan Fellowship and a Whiting Writer's Award, among many other honors for his work. He lives in northern Idaho.

The poem of the title is so strange and beautiful; I heard Johnson read it during an event at the Michener Center in Austin and it blew me away Johnson's poems tend to be very narrative; that is, they're not full of trickery and fancy figures of speech; they actually tell stories. And just like with his novels, his writing has this weird, druggy effect.

I listened to all of the New Yorker fiction podcasts featuring Denis Johnson stories over the past few months. It adds up to a pretty eclectic group of authors reading four of five (I think only four) stories of Johnson's collected in Jesus' Son. I bought a used copy of that collection sight unseen at Downtown Books and News in Asheville,NC in maybe 2006 or 2007. The poems stand on there own, but viewed as a progression towards the style and substance of the stories in Jesus Son, the offer a unique portrait of an extremely gifted author finding his voice. I would recommend this to anyone, but would say it's near required reading for longtime fans of Denis Johnson.

Denis Johnson dea of a Great Power in that instant, and in that instant my personality was fashioned. I was under a lot of pressure when I set the fire. In the State Hospital I prayed that one of the patients would attack a doctor so that I could illustrate my intentions by a good deed. My prayer was brought true on the forty-seventh day of my suffering. Since then I’ve been moved here

When Denis Johnson died, last year, much was written about his novels and short stories-the best being Tree . I have on my desk a copy of his poems, collected and new, from 1995, called The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations Millennium General Assembly.

When Denis Johnson died, last year, much was written about his novels and short stories-the best being Tree of Smoke, his magisterial, National Book Award-winning novel about the Vietnam War, and Jesus’ Son, a series of vignettes about drug addiction and the white working class from a time before they were referred to as such. Few of the plaudits, however, mentioned his poetry. The title refers to a work of outsider art now on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Thoroughly up to Denis Johnson's usual incredibly high standard. I believe we lost Denis Johnson this summer, a serious loss to literature. Multi talented, working both in short stories, novels, and oerry, as this collection is, Denis Johnson is a writer well worth reading, and this is an excellent collection of poetry.

I don't normally read a lot of poetry, but Denis Johnson is such a great writer, I wanted to try this one. I love his books Jesus' Son and Tree of Smoke and especially Train Dreams. I'm glad I bought this book. I read it in two sittings. The poem of the title is so strange and beautiful; I heard Johnson read it during an event at the Michener Center in Austin and it blew me away Johnson's poems tend to be very narrative; that is, they're not full of trickery and fancy figures of speech; they actually tell stories. And just like with his novels, his writing has this weird, druggy effect. It's often hallucinatory and creepy, but then he makes you laugh. This effect reminds me a lot of Jesse Sublett's writing -- he's also surealistic, dark and funny.

A little let down compared to his prose. Not as lyrical and less perceptive. More vague and abstract.
Mildorah
An important voice, exciting language, one of my absolute favorites. Read this book and Jesus' Son, you will not be disappointed!

I love Denis Johnson. I'm not going to ramble on about some thesis of why this book is great. If you like Denis Johnson's work, you will enjoy this collection, because it's all of it! :)
