The sonnets by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition focuses on the Sonnets as poetry - sometimes strikingly individual poems, but often subtly interlinked in thematic, imagistic and other groupings. Gwynne Evans and Anthony Hecht also address the many questions that cast a veil of mystery over the genesis of the Sonnets: to what extent are they autobiographical? What is the nature of the 'love', strongly expressed, between the 'poet', the 'youth' and the 'Dark Lady'? Can they, apart from the poet, be Identified? Who is the 'rival poet'? When were the Sonnets written and in what order? What were the circumstances surrounding their publication?
The desires of mothers to please others in letters by Bernadette Mayer( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This one is all adventure in the event, a scaling of the exigent, an act of utter tell beyond the call. In contingency detail, at hypnagogic rates, she meets you in mind of a reckoning. 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
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 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cave by Clark Coolidge( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 66 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 54 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
