Larry Eigner, whose spare, dense and impassioned poetry carried on the tradition of William Carlos Williams, died on Feb. Over the years, as Larry's speech improved markedly by his exposure to so many different people in Berkeley very different I gather from the isolation within his parents house in Swampscott for 51 yearsand as I also learned to listen, I could and did have real conversations over the phone with him. He's invented, for poetry, something equivalent to three-dimensional photography: his works present a series of perceptions etched deep into the mind, where the mind is charted on a page and the page becomes a model of the thinking field. Norma Cole reminded me its appropriateness: n o m o r e p o e t r y! The editorial focus in this definitive collection is to present Eigner's work in a manner that rigorously adheres to the author's typewritten manuscripts as the best guide to the visual shape of each poem.

In Eigner's poems, themes of ecology and explorations of his Jewish heritage exist side by side with the most advanced experimental techniques and deep, deceptively simple, sensuous evocations of the world around him. This acknowledgement of the daily, a series of remarks on the otherwise unremarkable, a sort of poetic alchemy that is not dissimilar to one strain of Jewish mysticism a strain in which the mysticism dissolves into an active apprehension of the realis an abiding model of and for a poetry where things as they are let to stand for themselves. Step by step, slowly turning. Room for pause and the pause which makes room place once inside. Paradoxically, his physical state proves not a limit of his powers as a poet but, rather, an unexpected sponsor of its exceptional intellectual and perceptual authority.

Chip Cooper is a current artist in residence from the Fototeca de Cuba for the City of Havana and artist in residence in the Honors College at the University of Alabama. In such a case, the poems could have all been composed by the author and spoken by characters in the diary; they could be actual poems received from lovers, family members, and other corespondents, or ones heard at poetry gatherings. It was no ordinary privilege to have known him. References to many significant moments, people, and issues in Cuban history and culture can be found throughout his work.

Windows/walls/yard/ways book

What few critical accounts exist of his work come from poets. Allen Fisher is a poet, painter, publisher, art historian, and performer associated with the British Poetry Revival. The other, Chip Cooper, came to visit for the first time from his native Alabama more than a decade ago.

His poetry and his art works have consistently explored the ethics and aesthetics of the interrelatedness of science, art, and everyday life. The pattern tended to be for people to Windows/walls/yard/ways book him for a while, make some effort to understand his speech, and then to drift away.

Eigner's family requests that the public and freinds not send flowers. Participants keep daily entries of thoughts, experimental writing, observation, conversation, readings, dreams and study. While older generations of Cuban poets have wrestled in their work with social and political critique, those critiques have often been articulated through formal experimentation and abstraction, unsurprising given the censorship and the real threats of punishment that dissident writers have faced.

In adjacency is act-uality: "you thought it was as it is". Here, a few basics: borngot cerebral palsy at birth, non-ambulatory, lived in Massachusetts untilthen Berkeley. He was On both sides, whether the push outside punctuates birds its conscious present of paper cosmos whether "times advance" ie tides, ties, pools or manmade poles, pinpoints, power The time of Windows/walls/yard/ways book residence is in parentheses.

Retrieved The vantage from which he creates this page and watches the world is his room. What does it mean to write with Time as the key element? Later, seven correspondence courses from the University of Chicago gave him "a toe-hold of application and hope.

As Cuba experiences a series of historically remarkable transitions, Morales emerges from this context to offer an incisive poetic account of this critical moment in Cuban, as well as world, history. On a personal level, I miss Larry—who died in February —as a poet whose curiosity and attentiveness remain a model of poetic integrity.

How its position swounds an acoustic however auditory acrostic of stunned steps from the straits of its audiational vista bay is a bowl the geographic sun room's horticulture not hormuz how zounds leads is the wall that stands outside which sends windows sounds "The Music, The Rooms" in "silence silence silence silence sound" where sound only capable amid the profusion of wounds.

It was no ordinary privilege to have known him. And we, these peasants, in our past and present reality, summon the ghosts of our grandparents. Chip Cooper is a current artist in residence from the Fototeca de Cuba for the City of Havana and artist in residence in the Honors College at the University of Alabama.

Thus the dialectical movement of the poems is made possible by an openness to embrace the manifest, contingent phenomena of temporal existence and a willingness of mind to release its hold at any point. Bread is the staff of life, Grampa said many times buttering it at the beginning of dinner.

Like so many other readers, I had fallen entirely in love with Larry's poetry long before I had any understanding of how challenged he was by his own body. Larry Eigner began writing poetry at age eight and was first published at age nine.

It is a remarkable body of work, and this edition, meticulously edited by Robert Grenier and Curtis Faville, is an extraordinary achievement that presents all of Eigner's poems exactly as he graphed them on his typewriter.

Simply the silence that makes sound possible only as an outline in its furls. There windowed against the spoken pause musical parlor under skies skies hold mutable pause midwing "birds pass the window" pause "the curves together" sound only plays against its instrument forgotten "on the screen" "the clock shakes out" as is player piano--a scroll of white of "silence silence silence silence sound" where sound only capable amid the profusion of wounds--the punctuations as punctures the scroll makes room for.

He is an emeritus professor of poetry and art at Manchester Metropolitan University and the author of several publications, including Sputtor, Gravity as a consequence of shape, and the seminal work Place. At the same time, he seldom foregrounded his mediated physical condition—his daily regimes of physical exercise, his limited mobility, his slurred speech—preferring to record real-time perception and observation.
