Questions of poetics : language writing and consequences by Barrett Watten( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions of Poetics is Barrett Watten's major reassessment of the political history, social formation, and literary genealogy of Language writing. Over three decades of writing in poetics, Watten has developed a sustained account of its theory and practice. The present volume represents the core of Watten's critical writing and public lecturing since the millennium, taking up the historical origins and continuity of Language writing from its beginnings to the present. Questions of Poetics will be a major point of reference in continuing debates on poetry and literary history, a critical re-examination for already familiar readers and a clearly presented introduction for new ones

Country, harbor, quiet, act, around : selected prose by Larry Eigner( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 116 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

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
