Poetry. Art. This book features important new visual works by one of the U.S.'s best known and respected avant-garde writers. "The principal subject of my poems is qualities indigenous to words themselves; everything else should be shunted aside as something else"--Richard Kostelanetz. "[Kostelanetz] is probably the world's most experimental writer, or at least he represents the farthest extreme of the formalist approach within the broader field of 'experimental writing.'...His output in 'visual poetry,' a medium between poetry and painting which differs from most concrete poetry by being non-linear and non-synatactic, is among his most significant work"--A Reader's Guide to Twentieth-Century Writers.

Richard Kostelanetz has for forty years been at the crest, and has indeed to some degree defined, the avant-garde in America. The recipient of numerous grants and awards from the NEA, ASCAP, Guggenheim Foundation, and others, he is the editor of many anthologies of innovative work and, above all, is the author of some of the most celebrated cutting-edge work in American writing. If the avant-garde can be said to have celebrities, Kostelanetz is certainly among the most prominent.About the Author:
