My vocabulary did this to me : the collected poetry of Jack Spicer by Jack Spicer( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 519 libraries worldwide
"While the first part of this edition, 1945-1956, doesn't include every poem he wrote at this time, our aim has been to make a judicious selection of single poems from One Night Stand [1980] and from notebooks and manuscripts in order to provide something more than an adequate sense of Spicer's first decade of writing. Therefore this edition is not a 'complete' but a 'collected' poems. ... The second part of this book gathers a more complete picture of the second half of Spicer's writing life. ... It is our aim in this volume to present a comprehensive edition of Spicer's work from 1945-1965 and to establish a fair text of his major poems, creating, in effect, his first collected poems to function as a standard reading edition."--"About this edition," p.xxviii-xxx

Archeophonics by Peter Gizzi( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Archeophonics is the first collection of new work from the poet Peter Gizzi in five years. Archeophonics, defined as the archeology of lost sound, is one way of understanding the role and the task of poetry: to recover the buried sounds and shapes of languages in the tradition of the art, and the multitude of private connections that lie undisclosed in one’s emotional memory. The book takes seriously the opening epigraph by the late great James Schuyler: “poetry, like music, is not just song.” It recognizes that the poem is not a decorative art object but a means of organizing the world, in the words of anthropologist Clifford Geertz, “into transient examples of shaped behavior.” Archeophonics is a series of discrete poems that are linked by repeated phrases and words, and its themes are nothing less than joy, outrage, loss, transhistorical thought, and day-to-day life. It is a private book of public and civic concerns.--Amazon.com
In defense of nothing : selected poems, 1987-2011 by Peter Gizzi( Book )
8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
Since his celebrated first book of poetry, Peter Gizzi has been hailed as one of the most significant and distinctive voices writing today. Gathered from over five collections, and representing close to twenty-five years of work, the poems in this generous selection strike a dynamic balance of honesty, emotion, intellectual depth and otherworldly resonance--in Gizzi's work, poetry itself becomes a primary ground of human experience. Haunted, vibrant, and saturated with luminous detail, Gizzi's poetry enlists the American vernacular in a magical and complex music. In Defense of Nothing is an immensely valuable introduction to the work of this extraordinary and singular poet

Periplum and other poems, 1987-1992 by Peter Gizzi( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
"Periplum and Other Poems" brings together Peter Gizzi's celebrated and influential first book, out of print for nearly a decade, with 60 pages of early and uncollected work, including the long poem "Music for Films." This new edition functions as a collected poems of Gizzi's work from 1987 to 1992. John Ashbery hailed Gizzi as "the most exciting poet to come along in quite a while." The vibrancy and immediacy of Gizzi's poems constitute 21st-century lyricism at its best, a richly complex music engaged with the crucial questions of and around contemporary culture. Michael Boughn wrote in the "Poetry Project Newsletter" that ""Periplum" reveals and shatters an unspeakably fragile world ... emerging with a new knowing, a knowing that matters, as in matters of life and death." His poems achieve a delicate balance of emotional and intellectual richness and the sense of poetry itself as a primary ground of human experience

The white stones by J. H Prynne( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"J. H. Prynne is Britain's leading late-Modernist poet. His work, as it has emerged since the 1960s, when he was close to Charles Olson, is marked by a remarkable combination of lyricism and abstraction, at once austere and playful. The White Stones is a book that is central to Prynne's career and poetics, and it constitutes an ideal introduction to the achievement and vision of a legendary but in America still little-known contemporary master"--
