Frame : (1971-1990) by Barrett Watten( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For two decades, Barrett Watten has occupied a singular, foreground position in American writing. He has expanded the very definition of poetry and opened the genre to history, philosophy, and politics. In Frame, Watten crosses shifting cultural terrains by means of deliberate engagements in language. His thought, embodied with visionary clarity, passes forcefully between differing modes of experience. His innovative techniques recall the poetics of Andre Breton's points
Country, harbor, quiet, act, around : selected prose by Larry Eigner( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Larry Eigner's poems are stars falling out of the sky. Seldom has there been such a shower. For the sky in his head meets space naturally, not on some self-imagined edge. Stars can go wrong. Most poets will not accept that. Where so much poetry ends, Eigner's begins. His prose, why not, comes from another angle, closer here. Second-story man, moved down to first. Try living in bed, when not in a wheelchair, for fortysome years, with a window nearby; with the seasons opening and closing that window ..."--Douglas Woolf, from the introduction
Progress ; Under erasure by Barrett Watten( Book )

This volume brings together two collections of poetry, the previously published Progress (published to critical acclaim in 1985) and Under Erasure, a new work by one of the major figures of the San Francisco Language poetry scene of the 1970s and 1980s. Progress in writing politics, wrote Andrew Ross of the first work. Robert Creeley noted of Watten: He has done what I had begun to think impossible ... made articulate and accessible the decisive activity of our present writing. --Green Integer
