Poetry. ACE, complete! This reprint of
one of Raworth's most well-received
works includes "Bolivia: Another End of
Ace," as well as drawings by Barry Hall
only seen in the very limited British
edition. In the early 1970s Ted Berrigan
wrote of him: "When I read the best of
Tom Raworth's poems, I feel proud. They
are a human accomplishment, a poet's."
Raworth is the author of over 40 books
including MEADOW, CLEAN & WELL LIT:
SELECTED POEMS 1987-1995, Eternal
Sections, and The Relation
Ship. Of his selected early poems,
TOTTERING STATE, Lyn Hejinian has
written "These are among the greatest
writings of our times."

Tom Raworth was born and grew up in London. During the 1970s he traveled and worked in the United states and Mexico, returning to England in 1977 to be Resident Poet at King's College, Cambridge, in which city he lived for many years. Since 1966 he has published more than 40 books and pamphlets of poetry, prose and translations, in several countries. His graphic work has been shown in France, Italy, and the United States, and he has collaborated and performed with musicians (Steve Lacy, JoŽlle Lťandre, Steve Nelson-Raney, Esther Roth, Nino Locatelli), painters (Giovanni D'Agostino, MicaŽla Henich), and other poets (Franco Beltrametti, Corrado Costa, Dario Villa). In 1991 he was invited to teach at the University of Cape Town: the first European writer to visit there for thirty years. Raworth now lives in Brighton, Sussex.From Publishers Weekly:
First published but never distributed (after 315 of the 350 copies were destroyed in a flood) in 1974, then republished to avant-garde acclaim in 1977, Raworth's early book, illustrated by Barry Hall, effects a curious, tripped-up rhythm of extremely short lines (usually one word; occasionally four), flickering thoughts and no punctuation. In stripped down language, Raworth (Clean & Well Lit) evokes a stuttering, attention-deficited perception that is continuously surprised and sometimes overwhelmed by its own observations: "of face/ your own/ movie/ but what/ is happening/ can also/ mean/ PAUSE/ PAUSE/ a verb/ stars/ is undue/ experience/ element/ of subjectivity."
