The cell by Lyn Hejinian ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'The Cell' of this work connotes several things, some contradictory: biological life, imprisonment, closure, and circulation. But it is just the relationships and opostions of these that Hejinian serches out in poetry that, like her previous work, displays a magical blend of logic and contradition, of narrative impetus stopped in its tracks by aphoristic wit. --Sun & Moon Press
Writing is an aid to memory by Lyn Hejinian ( Book )
7 editions published between 1978 and 1996 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I am always conscious of the disquieting runs of life slipping by," writes Lyn Hejinian in the Preface to this major early work of poetry. "Necessity is the limit with forgetfulness, but it remains undefined. Memory is the girth, or again." In this incredible work, Hejinian takes the idea of memory as something repeated, or "a gain," something that contributes and advances presentness. First published by The Figures in 1978, this work has long been unavailable and has been highly sought by the numerous readers and students of Hejinian's work. Her works My Life, The Cell, and The Cold of Poetry are taught in universities internationally, and have created a large audience for her writing. Writing Is an Aid to Memory will make available, once again, an important part of her oeuvre

Poetry of the surreal. In The Person, she writes: "Let's get isolated / The temporal is dread / Is there a name / for the imploding series / consciousness of consciousness / Realism and depth perception / The audacious science of the thought / of poetry / Person / holding picture of / person holding picture of... / Anxiety in space."

Xenia by A Dragomoshchenko ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Perloff notes that Dragomoschenko's "is a poem of the body, of the 'skin of sun that turned into the reverse side of touch....' Parody, pastiche, even irony - these play a subordinate role to passion, and especially to vision." Writing in The Hungry Mind Review, American poet C. D. Wright concluded: "This is poetry. Immodest. Magisterial. More or less impenetrable. The relation of language is potential but not improvisational. The vocabulary for this is happily idiosyncratic

A skillful and beautifully produced montage by filmmaker Jacki Ochs documenting the five-year letter correspondence between U.S. poet Lyn Hejinian and Ukranian writer Arkadii Dragomoshchenko. The two writers began a confessional relationship portrayed here by readings from their letters as visual images shot both in the United States and the former Soviet Union build upon one another to provide a cerebral and adept exploration of their personal histories and the language, culture and arts of both countries
