Barnesbook : four poems derived from sentences by Djuna Barnes by Jackson Mac Low( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long an admirer of the work of Djuna Barnes, noted poet Jackson Mac Low used five of her works as the source material to which he applied the method of "involving irregularly biased random digit triplets to lead ... to a chance-determined number of sentences in these works and to mix them." He then entered each group of mixed sentences into the DIASTEXT program and edited the output. The result is a wonderful nonintentional work that "whispers" Barnes's incredible words "something quick" into the ear. In this work the distinguished American poet - winner of the 1994 America Award for Poetry - continues to explore the dynamics and excitement of the American language and its meaning

From Pearl Harbor Day to FDR's birthday : 7 December 1981-30 January 1982 : poems by Jackson Mac Low( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1995 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Upon its original publication in 1982, From Pearl Harbor Day to FDR's Birthday, representing work written from the 7th of December 1981 to the 30th of January 1982, was recognized as a significant new direction in the writing of noted poet Jackson Mac Low. Although he had written disjunctive poems since the 1930s, this work evinced a new interest, aroused in part by the "Language" poets, in intentional methodology, as opposed to his chance-oriented poems, writing he continued in Bloomsday (1984) and in Pieces O'Six (published in the Sun & Moon Classics in 1992)
