This is the first collection to draw on the full range of Zukofsky's poetry--containing short lyrics, versions of Catullus, and generous selections from "A", his 24-part "poem of a life"--and provides a superb introduction to a modern master of whom the critic Guy Davenport has written: "Every living American poet worth a hoot has stood aghast before the steel of his integrity." The most formally radical poet to emerge among the second wave of American modernists, Louis Zukofsky continues to influence younger poets attracted to the rigor, inventiveness, and formal clarity of his work. Born on New York's Lower East Side in 1904 to emigrant parents, Zukofsky achieved early recognition when he edited an issue of Poetry devoted to the Objectivist poets, including George Oppen and Charles Reznikoff. In addition to an abundance of short lyrics and a sound-based version of the complete poems of Catullus, he worked for most of his adult life on the long poem "A" of which he said: "In a sense the poem is an autobiography: the words are my life." Zukofsky's work has been described as difficult although he himself said: "I try to be as simple as possible." In the words of editor Charles Bernstein, "This poetry leads with sound and you can never go wrong following the sound sense... Zukofsky loved to create patterns, some of which are apparent and some of which operate subliminally... Each word, like a stone dropped in a pond, creates a ripple around it. The intersecting ripples on the surface of the pond are the pattern of the poem." Here for the first time is a selection designed to introduce the full range of Zukofsky's extraordinary poetry."--Publisher's website+-+70473568463699ocn052757385book20030.77Williams, William CarlosThe correspondence of William Carlos Williams & Louis ZukofskyRecords and correspondence"The Correspondence of William Carlos Williams and Louis Zukofsky chronicles the professional and personal relationship between Williams and Zukofsky as they present one another with criticism, suggestions and confidences that are at turns touching and astonishingly candid. In addition to delving into the creative processes of the two men, this exciting and extensive collection provides important insight into the development of Modernism and into literary icons such as Ezra Pound, E. E. Cummings and T. S. Eliot. The analytical voice of Zukofsky and the experimental style of Williams radiate in these letters, creating a vivid and invaluable document of American literature."--BOOK JACKET+-+25491046353397ocn001502403book19750.66Zukofsky, Louis"A" 22 & 233179ocn000012673book19680.70Zukofsky, Louis"A" 13-213116ocn000640400book19620.63Zukofsky, LouisArise, ariseArise, arise, Louis Zukofsky's play in two acts, written in 1936, is a companion volume to "A"-24, Celia's L.Z.

In this absorbing, perceptive study Alison Rieke addresses the problem of defining and characterizing the experimental uses of language that emerge out of this shared tradition of literary nonsense and enigmatic writing." "Here the difficult linguistic ventures of the four are examined, compared, and contrasted, from Joyce's daring monument to comic nonsense, Finnegans Wake, and Stein's secretive autobiography, Stanzas in Meditation, to Stevens' enigmatic poems in quest of the "supreme fiction" and Zukofsky's radically experimental long poem, "A." Rieke shows how "nonsense" usefully accounts for the various disruptions upon which many of their most impenetrable writings depend and how each author's motives of disruption are bound up with motives of secrecy, how each hides sense in riddle and enigma, wordplay, and verbal sleight of hand. Throughout, Rieke offers detailed treatment of each individual author, making clear distinctions among them through close textual analysis." "Ultimately Rieke adroitly illustrates that these authors' experimental disruptions tend less toward denying the sensible than toward accepting and absorbing it as a tool advantageously manipulated, inverted, and twisted in the production of an enigmatic art. Students of Modernism, readers of Joyce, Stein, Stevens, and Zukofsky, and all those interested in wordplay and semantics will want to read this book."--BOOK JACKET15143ocn045842628file19950.37Comens, BruceApocalypse and after modern strategy and postmodern tactics in Pound, Williams, and ZukofskyHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcApocalypse and After examines the development of Modernism into Postmodernism through the works of three major American poets. Modernism's struggle to develop a new global strategy was to a great extent a response to the catastrophe of World War I, while the Postmodern resort to fragmentary tactics stems from Modernist strategy's implications in World War II and the atomic bomb. The final chapter adumbrates the emergence of a paramodernism characteristic of our own time. The book is innovative in its many readings of specific poems and in its larger assessments of the poets' careers, while the method of analysis it develops is particularly noteworthy for its ability to relate nuances of formal innovation to the writers' diverse political contexts and programs+-+K78258263514476ocn044959546file19930.37Stanley, Sandra KumamotoLouis Zukofsky and the transformation of a modern American poeticsHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+12082557059385ocn826442818file20120.53Jennison, RuthThe Zukofsky era modernity, margins, and the avant-gardeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"Inaugurated in 1932 by Louis Zukofsky, Objectivist poetry gave expression to the complex contours of culture and politics in America during the Great Depression. This study of Zukofsky and two others in the Objectivist constellation, George Oppen and Lorine Niedecker, elaborates the dialectic between the formal experimental features of their poetry and their progressive commitments to the radical potentials of modernity. Mixing textual analysis, archival research, and historiography, Ruth Jennison shows how Zukofsky, Oppen, and Niedecker braided their experiences as working-class Jews, political activists, and feminists into radical, canon-challenging poetic forms. Using the tools of critical geography, Jennison offers an account of the relationship between the uneven spatial landscapes of capitalism in crisis and the Objectivists' paratactical textscapes. In a rethinking of the overall terms in which poetic modernism is described, she identifies and assesses the key characteristics of the Objectivist avant-garde, including its formal recognition of proliferating commodity cultures, its solidarity with global anticapitalist movements, and its imperative to develop poetics that nurtured revolutionary literacy. The resulting narrative is a historically sensitive, thorough, and innovative account of Objectivism's Depression-era modernism. A rich analysis of American avant-garde poetic forms and politics, The Zukofsky Era convincingly situates Objectivist poetry as a politically radical movement comprising a crucial chapter in American literary history. Scholars and students of modernism especially will find much to discuss in Jennison's theoretical study."--Project Muse6885ocn122337937book20070.53Scroggins, MarkThe poem of a life : a biography of Louis ZukofskyBiographyScroggins' very readable biography mixes impeccable scholarship with an astute sensitivity to the life of a cerebral, private man and a lucid appraisal of a poetry notable for its musicality and formal innovations. Scroggins' discussions of Zukofsky's important long poem "A" are models of critical commentary. By showing in exemplary fashion how the skeins of Zukofsky's life and poetry are subtly interwoven, The Poem of a Life is a valuable and stimulating biography.--inside jacket+-+43061284064951ocn006362051book19790.63Zukofsky, LouisLouis Zukofsky, man and poetBiography+-+85078506453674ocn042717004book20000.77Rifkin, LibbieCareer moves : Olson, Creeley, Zukofsky, Berrigan, and the American avant-gardeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcDescriptive copy pending receipt of title at Poets House+-+69931644753131ocn014067657book19870.70Pound, EzraPound/Zukofsky : selected letters of Ezra Pound and Louis ZukofskyBiographyRecords and correspondence3102ocn038207795book19980.79Scroggins, MarkLouis Zukofsky and the poetry of knowledgeCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+62545826352924ocn026851452book19930.79Penberthy, Jenny LynnNiedecker and the correspondence with Zukofsky, 1931-1970Records and correspondence+-+04189967052792ocn034590952book19970.82Upper limit music : the writing of Louis ZukofskyCriticism, interpretation, etcSince his death in 1978, Louis Zukofsky has become widely recognized as a major American modernist poet of importance comparable to that of his friends Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams. Unfortunately, of the little criticism of Zukofsky's work, much fails to take into account large stretches of his writings. The essays collected in Upper Limit Music examine all aspects of Zukofsky's work and all periods of his career. There are interpretations of his short poetry, of his epic-length "A," of his unconventional and groundbreaking fiction, and of his writings for the 1930s WPA project, the Index of American Design.
