About this title


With color reproductions of five paintings by Beauford Delaney, this series of sustained lyrical poems, each seven lines long in a 1-2-1-2-1 haiku-like disciplined format, focuses on color as simultaneously a race and aesthetic issue.

From the Publisher:

Cid Corman is widely known as the editor of Origin and Origin Press, which published first books by such well-known poets as Charles Olson, William Bronk, Gary Snyder, Ted Enslin, and the first printing of Louis Zukofsky's A. Corman is also a translator of many ancients and moderns, such as Andr du Bouchet, Philippe Jaccottet, Ren Char, Antonin Artaud, Apollinaire, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Mallarm, and more recently, Henri-Simon Faure, Alain Malherbe and Laurent Grisel. Corman is the beginning of oral poetry (improvised completely) in our century. His five volume book of poems, OF, is considered by many to be one of the most challenging works of the twentieth century. Beauford Delaney was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1901. He lived there until 1924, in Boston for the next five years, and in New York until 1953. Corman met Delaney in Paris in October 1954. They saw each other at intervals over the next year or two in the Montparnasse area, and became good friends. Delaney at the time was making his abstract richly-colored woven-paint work. During this period Corman wrote his first poems on Delaney. They stayed in touch for a time, even when the poet went to Japan in 1958, where he has largely lived since. For the most part, the poems of Tributary were written in 1995. Delaney, who lived a life devoted to painting, continued living in Paris for twenty-six years, and died in 1979.
