The darkness of the present : poetics, anachronism, and the anomaly by Steve McCaffery( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Darkness of the Present includes essays that collectively investigate the roles of anomaly and anachronism as they work to unsettle commonplace notions of the "contemporary" in the field of poetics. In the eleven essays of The Darkness of the Present, poet and critic Steve McCaffery argues that by approaching the past and the present as unified entities, the contemporary is made historical at the same time as the historical is made contemporary. McCaffery's writings work against the urge to classify works by placing

Form, power, and person in Robert Creeley's life and work( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By any measure - international reputation, influence upon fellow writers and later generations, number of books published, scholarly and critical attention - Robert Creeley (1926-2005) is a literary giant, an outstanding, irreplaceable poet. For many decades readers have remarked upon the almost harrowing emotional nakedness of Creeley's writing. In the years since his death, it may be that the disappearance of the writer allows that nakedness to be observed more readily and without embarrassment
Rational geomancy : the kids of the book-machine : the collected research reports of the Toronto Research Group, 1973-82 by Steve McCaffery( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Toronto Research Group was an eighteen year collaboration and friendship between the late bpNichol and Steve McCaffery. In addition to reports on translation; the book-as-machine; and the search for non-narrative prose; this collection includes an informative introduction by McCaffery; a new report on performance; {u2018}Reading and Writing: The Toronto Research Game'; and much hitherto unpublished material. From scholasticism to pop-up books, theBook of Nature to comic strips, these frequently witty, often irreverent and methodically mischievious reports document a vital era, not only in the intellectual growth of two individuals, but in the history of critical collaboration in North America. With a revised format, additional bibliography and profuse illustrations, this book will prove to be of inestimable value to anyone tracing the poetic archeology of the seventies in Anglophone Canada

Verse and worse : selected and new poems of Steve McCaffery 1989-2009 by Steve McCaffery( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Verse and Worse: Selected and New Poems of Steve McCaffery 1989-2009 presents texts from the last two decades by one of the most innovative of contemporary poets. The volume focuses on selections from McCaffery's major texts but also features a substantial number of previously ungathered poems. As playful as they are cerebral, these poems stage an incessant departure from conventional lyrical and narrative methods of making meaning. For those encountering McCaffery's work for the first time, as well as for those who have followed the twists and turns of his astonishingly heterogeneous poetic trajectory, this volume is essential reading."--Jacket
The cheat of words by Steve McCaffery( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Cheat of Words McCaffery expands on the linguistic and political issues addressed in his previous book Theory of Sediment. In this new work the reader encounters, and must negotiate, an insistent slippage of meaning. Exploiting the inherent "shiftiness" of language, that tendency of phrases to refuse to link into higher syllogistic ensembles, McCaffery demonstrates the incessant potential within writing to disturb all drives toward centrality, and stability. Defiantly non-lyrical and non-narrative this poetry achieves a neo-baroque festiveness within its regulatory scepticism
