Collects all the poems and prose poetry comprising the author's "Age of huts" cycle, an exploration of all times and places through the medium of language, particularly the American vernacular, and a philosophical experiment in which images and phrases occur in long successions that are seemingly separate from the sentence before it and the sentence that follows, in order to create a new form of poetic thought

Originally appearing in 1977 and now in its 11th printing, this classic collection of essays by one of the sharpest minds in American contemporary poetic thought remains Roof's best seller to date. It is a collection with rich insight into Silliman's own monumental poetical work and the writing of his peers, a book which both illuminates the concerns of the era in which it was written and radiates outward with a tremendous scope that continues to bear fruit for the contemporary reader.--Publisher description

The alphabet by Ronald Silliman( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
"The Alphabet is a remarkable and notorious literary achievement, decades in the making, one continually debated, discussed, and imitated since fragments first appeared in the 1970s. Consisting of twenty-six smaller books, one for each letter of the alphabet, it employs language in ways that are startling and innovative. Over the course of the three decades during which it has appeared - in journals, magazines, and as stand-alone volumes - its influence has been wide-ranging, both on practicing poets and on critics who have had to contend with the way it has changed the direction of American poetry"--Back cover
