The cat inside by William S Burroughs ( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"There is an unexpected side to William Burroughs - the author of weird and disturbing fictions had a great fondness for cats. This is his earnest appreciation of the cats he knew, a record of his dreams of cats, and a meditation on the long, mysterious relationship between cats and their human hosts. In The Cat Inside, Burroughs is touching when writing of the many strays he took in over the years, disdainful of dogs ('self-righteous as a lynch mob'), always erudite and surprisingly caring - it is a genuine revelation, for Burroughs fans and cat lovers alike." -- Book cover

Ideograms in China by Henri Michaux ( Book )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Previously available only as a limited edition, Henri Michaux's Ideograms in China is now available as a New Directions paperback. Translated by the American poet Gustaf Sobin, this long, illustrated and annotated prose poem was originally written as an introduction to Leon Chang's La calligraphie chinoise (1971), a work that now stands as an important complement to Pound and Ernest Fenollosa's classic study, The Chinese Written Character as a Medium for Poetry."--BOOK JACKET
Life & death by Robert Creeley ( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If youth asks the mirror, "Am I the fairest?" then age, in Robert Creeley's voice asks, "Do you remember me?" And the poems of Life & Death are the mirror's answers: a collage of recollection and salvage, a gathering-in before winter's night. The first section, "Histoire de Florida," is a partial autobiography at a specific time and place. It captures the poet in an engaged and highly compacted moment that deliberately echoes Wallace Stevens's "The Anecdote of the Jar" - a reverberation from the poet's youth. The second section, "Old Poems, Etc.," contains classic reflections - from the doggerel humor of "'Present (Present)'" to parody of early Metaphysical models like George Herbert in "Echo's Arrow." The capstone of this section is the sustained "The Dogs of Auckland," which focuses impressions from an extended time spent in that city and becomes a resume of age and its effects, made vividly objective by the contrasting culture of New Zealand. Artists have always proved decisive company for the poet, and the third section contains the texts of three collaborations with the painter Francesco Clemente

The nonconformist's memorial : poems by Susan Howe ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sequences fall into two sections, "Turning" and "Conversion," in half-ironic nonconforming counterpoint to Eliot's Four Quartets. Her collaging and mirror-imaging of words are concretions of verbal static, visual meditations on what can and cannot be said. For Howe, "Melville's Marginalia" is the essential poem in the collection, an approach to an elusive and allusive mind through Melville's own reading and the notations in his library books. This, says Howe, is "Language a wood for thought."
The silent Mr. Palomar by Italo Calvino ( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
