Rampant : poems by Marvin Bell( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marvin Bell, one of America's most influential, visible, and inventive poets, likes ideas to have a little dirt on their shoes. His wildly original and often gritty curiosity finds inspiration in wide-ranging locales, and even wider topics. He will take on any subject in his poetry, and the conclusion of Rampant is a ten-part suite, Journal of the Posthumous Present, which was commissioned by the Getty Research Institute and published as a cover feature in American Poetry Review. The poem is remarkable for its original methods and socio-philosophic investigation, and points to the signature of Bell's career: his ability to radically examine the world through poetry. --Copper Canyon Press
