The cell by Lyn Hejinian ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 291 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 200 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
