Country, harbor, quiet, act, around : selected prose by Larry Eigner( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
"Larry Eigner's poems are stars falling out of the sky. Seldom has there been such a shower. For the sky in his head meets space naturally, not on some self-imagined edge. Stars can go wrong. Most poets will not accept that. Where so much poetry ends, Eigner's begins. His prose, why not, comes from another angle, closer here. Second-story man, moved down to first. Try living in bed, when not in a wheelchair, for fortysome years, with a window nearby; with the seasons opening and closing that window ..."--Douglas Woolf, from the introduction
Progress ; Under erasure by Barrett Watten( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 103 libraries worldwide
This volume brings together two collections of poetry, the previously published Progress (published to critical acclaim in 1985) and Under Erasure, a new work by one of the major figures of the San Francisco Language poetry scene of the 1970s and 1980s. Progress in writing politics, wrote Andrew Ross of the first work. Robert Creeley noted of Watten: He has done what I had begun to think impossible ... made articulate and accessible the decisive activity of our present writing. --Green Integer
