My vocabulary did this to me : the collected poetry of Jack Spicer by Jack Spicer( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 2,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the first part of this edition, 1945-1956, doesn't include every poem he wrote at this time, our aim has been to make a judicious selection of single poems from One Night Stand [1980] and from notebooks and manuscripts in order to provide something more than an adequate sense of Spicer's first decade of writing. Therefore this edition is not a 'complete' but a 'collected' poems. ... The second part of this book gathers a more complete picture of the second half of Spicer's writing life. ... It is our aim in this volume to present a comprehensive edition of Spicer's work from 1945-1965 and to establish a fair text of his major poems, creating, in effect, his first collected poems to function as a standard reading edition."--"About this edition," p.xxviii-xxx
The house that Jack built : the collected lectures of Jack Spicer by Jack Spicer( )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and German and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT resides in one volume the four historic talks given by controversial poet Jack Spicer just before his early death in 1965. These lively and provocative lectures function as a gloss to Spicer's own poetry, a general discourse on poetics, and a cautionary handbook for young poets. This thorough documentation of Spicer's unorthodox poetic vision is an authoritative edition of an underground classic

Doubled flowering from the notebooks of Araki Yasusada by Kent Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Araki Yasusada is a kind of literary hoax, also associated with Tosa Motokiyu, who may himself be a fictional figure. It is also unclear whether there is any Japanese that was translated or whether this is original poetry. Cf. Denver quarterly, v. 31, no. 4, pp. 106-126. The person responsible for the interview with Kent Johnson, Groany McGee, "is not real."
