The cell by Lyn Hejinian( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
'The Cell' of this work connotes several things, some contradictory: biological life, imprisonment, closure, and circulation. But it is just the relationships and opostions of these that Hejinian serches out in poetry that, like her previous work, displays a magical blend of logic and contradition, of narrative impetus stopped in its tracks by aphoristic wit. --Sun & Moon Press
Writing is an aid to memory by Lyn Hejinian( Book )
10 editions published between 1978 and 1996 in English and held by 209 libraries worldwide
"I am always conscious of the disquieting runs of life slipping by," writes Lyn Hejinian in the Preface to this major early work of poetry. "Necessity is the limit with forgetfulness, but it remains undefined. Memory is the girth, or again." In this incredible work, Hejinian takes the idea of memory as something repeated, or "a gain," something that contributes and advances presentness. First published by The Figures in 1978, this work has long been unavailable and has been highly sought by the numerous readers and students of Hejinian's work. Her works My Life, The Cell, and The Cold of Poetry are taught in universities internationally, and have created a large audience for her writing. Writing Is an Aid to Memory will make available, once again, an important part of her oeuvre

"In his new collection, Xenia, Dragomoschenko continues to explore the world about him, a world in which the natural, in which nature is more radical than most psychologically motivated and realist-oriented poets have ever recognized it to be. "I spent a life / which no one here ever saw in dreams." As Dragomoschenko makes clear at the very beginning of this stunning and profound work: "We see only what / we see // only what / lets us be ourselves - / seen.""

The unfollowing by Lyn Hejinian( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
The Unfollowing is a sequence of elegies, mourning public as well as personal loss. The grief is not coherent. Though the poems are each fourteen lines long, they are not sonnets but anti-sonnets. They are composed entirely of non sequiturs, with the intention of demonstrating, if not achieving, a refusal to follow aesthetic proprieties, and a rejection of the logic of mortality and of capitalism. Outrage, hilarity, anxiety, and ribaldry are not easily separated in the play of human emotions. And they are all the proper, anarchic medium for staying alive
