The desires of mothers to please others in letters by Bernadette Mayer( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the endlessly inclusive Bernadette, the one from whom comes. And so at last these once secret letters are addressed to everyone. Clark Coolidge
Poetry by Bernadette Mayer( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sonnets by Ted Berrigan( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1964, The Sonnets by Ted Berrigan is considered by many to be his most important and influential book. This new annotated edition, with an introduction by Alice Notley, includes seven previously uncollected works. Like Shakespeare's sonnets, Berrigan's poems involve friendship and love triangles, but while the former happen chronologically, Berrigan's happen in the moment, with the story buried beneath a surface of names, repetitions, and fragmented experience. Reflecting the new American sensibilities of the 1960s as well as timeless poetic themes, The Sonnets is both eclectic and classical - the poems are monumental riddles worth contemplating."--Jacket
Eating the colors of a lineup of words : the early books of Bernadette Mayer by Bernadette Mayer( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernadette Mayer is among the most influential poets of the late 20th century and to the present, with much of that interest falling to her earliest works. At the age of 15, in 1960, Mayer began writing and instantly with an incarnate directness and resource belying her youth. Over the next two decades, this precocious start would culminate in a body of writing extraordinary in its range and import. Even given that Mayer was moving in a New York milieu given to radical practice--as evidenced in the journal 0 to 9 she co-edited in the late '60s--these books in their collective force represent an explosion of poetic forms and investigation as profound and sustained as American poetry perhaps has seen"--Publisher's website, Nov. 20, 2015
The cave by Clark Coolidge( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cave is a collaboration of prose, poetry, dialogue, and song alternately written by Clark Coolidge and Bernadette Mayer in their early thirties. Assembled between 1972 and 1978, The Cave explores the philosophy of Wittgenstein, the nature of language, and the connections between the present and past. It constantly challenges the reader to question reality, time, and the poets themselves. The work ranges from complex and imagistic rambles through imaginary landscapes to terse, clear accounts of exploring Eldon's Cave in western Massachusetts, the setting of several of Coolidge's poems. Like a mystery novel, The Cave draws the reader in with hints that all the strands weave together into a coherent picture. --Adventures in Poetry
What's your idea of a good time? : letters & interviews 1977-1985 by Bill Berkson( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In or around 1977, Bernadette Mayer and Bill Berkson initiated a correspondence that eventually centered on question-and-answer exchanges usually folded inside accompanying cover letters. The candor and intensity of these epistolary interviews was sustained well into the mid 1980s. Included are intimate musings on everyday life, childhood, marriage, sex, poetry and other arts, cooking, weather, house-and-garden details, fashion, politics, philosophy, time, identity, morality, and much else besides. Although the exchanges have continued intermittently to this day, it is the bulk of that early, high-intensity phase that the present volume represents ... The title What's Your Idea of a Good Time? was the question that sparked the original project"--Page 7
