Reading the difficulties : dialogues with contemporary American innovative poetry by Thomas Fink( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bold essays that make up Reading the Difficulties offer case studies in and strategies for reading innovative poetry. Definitions of what constitutes innovative poetry are innumerable and are offered from every quarter. Some critics and poets argue that innovative poetry concerns free association (John Ashbery), others that experimental poetry is a "re-staging" of language (Bruce Andrews) or a syntactic and cognitive break with the past (Ron Silliman and Lyn Hejinian). The tenets of new poetry abound. But what of the new reading that such poetry demands? Essays in
Continuations 2 by Douglas Barbour( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Douglas Barbour and Sheila E. Murphy extend their singular poetic vision of that elusive third I/eye in Continuations 2. The new lyric voice sustained (within) these labyrinthine verses does so by virtue of its authors' pitch-perfect collaborative process. For ten years they have kept their song alive via email, pulsing jazz-like variations and haunting repetitions back and forth from Arizona to Alberta, all the while adhering to that taut stanza of six lines. Readers who admire Barbour and Murphy's past innovations, or any poetry that gracefully exceeds its reach, will enjoy Continuations 2

Incessant seeds by Sheila E Murphy( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Incessant Seeds can be viewed as both the yield and record of a process that involves working in units comprised of 14-syllable lines and 14 lines. Such a rule-based flow has the capacity of allowing a wide range of subject areas, perspectives, concerns, and swatches of language equivalent to musical phrases. I followed a similar approach when writing an earlier volume Teth, published by Chax Press, slightly more than a decade before composing Incessant Seeds in 2001. I found that rule-based composition leads the mind to find and gather like-sounding, like-shaped arrangements of words or syllables. It became clear that the more I used the determined method, the more in sync I became with the vibratory pattern inherent in the rule itself, an ironically liberating practice."--Publisher's website
