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

9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 515 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

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

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 74 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."
