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.

From the Publisher:

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:

Individual entries on Richard Kostelanetz's work in several fields appear in various editions of Readers Guide to Twentieth-Century Writers, Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature, Contemporary Poets, Contemporary Novelists, Postmodern Fiction, Webster's Dictionary of American Writers, The HarperCollins Reader's Encyclopedia of American Literature, Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians, Directory of American Scholars, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in American Art, NNDB.com, Wikipedia.com, and Britannica.com, among other distinguished directories. Otherwise, he survives in New York, where he was born, unemployed and thus overworked.
