Blues & roots, rue & bluets; a garland for the Appalachians by Jonathan Williams( Book )

8 editions published between 1968 and 1985 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Williams's poetry has been described as brilliant, sensuous, lyrical, quirky, suave, vital, joyful, sardonic, melodious, passionate, alive, pyrotechnic. This new, much enlarged edition of Blues and Roots displays all of the above. Williams has tramped the Appalachian Trail for decades, botanizing, jotting down specimens of authentic American speech, graffiti, superstitions, and nostrums-always curious, alert, and affectionately attentive. Blues and Roots focuses on the linguistic horizon of Appalachia in lyrics of wonder and light, of wit and comic incongruity, in found poems of the s

Harry Callahan by Harry M Callahan( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and French and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harry Callahan, known for his bold exploration of quotidian details and his innovative use of the abstract in photography, has created a career that spans many eras and lives. From his extended portrait of his wife, Eleanor, to his formal studies of architectural structures and his observation of abstract expressionist line in natural forms, Callahan's remarkable work has been central to the development of American photography. The influence of his labors is easily recognized in the work of many disparate genres of visual art. His photographic legacy continues on not only in the vibrancy of his own images, but in the unparalleled inspiration his teaching has brought to many. Aperture's Masters of Photography series presents Callahan's most vital and lasting images, in addition to a number of photographs that have never been published before. The accompanying essay by Jonathan Williams, poet, essayist, and the publisher of Jargon Society books, provides a unique textual complement to the subtlety of Callahan's work and vision

Jubilant thicket : new & selected poems by Jonathan Williams( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jubilant Thicket teems with the eccentric, strange, and boundlessly authentic - neoclassical poems, social satire, musical suites, limericks and lyrics. There is spleen, salt, and a delicious sarcasm, as Williams finds inspiration in Mahler and Mojo Nixon, William Blake and whimmy-diddles. Always in knowing command, he serves up an admixture of "found" and vernacular language, invented and archaic forms, jokes, shock, literary allusions, and political disgust."--Jacket

A palpable elysium : portraits of genius and solitude by Jonathan Williams( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If any place of the past century spawned originals like a breeding box, it was Black Mountain College, and among its many illustrious graduates is one Jonathan Williams, poet, publisher, raconteur, and eclectic collector of like spirits. In this book, Williams has made the rounds and produced his inventory of poets, painters, writers and artists whose only commonality is their unequivocal distinction." "This is a collection of extraordinary personalities captured on film in Williams's revealing, unpretentious casually evocative photographs, and decoded through Williams's intimate, often hilarious, extended captions and essays."--Jacket
