Poetry. Edited by Anne Tardos. This is the first publication of the complete series of Jackson Mac Low's "Forties" poems. Written and revised from 1990 to 1999 with a method Mac Low called "gathering" where he took into the poems words, phrases, and other kinds of word strings, and sometimes sentences, that he saw, heard, or thought of while writing the drafts the poems include detailed markings of caesural spacing, timing, compound words (many neologistic), and metrical stress. Each of the poems adhere to what Mac Low termed "fuzzy verse form": eight stanzas, each comprising five lines (hence the form's name): three moderately long lines, followed by a very long line, and then a short line."

Some curling from exposure to damp. Good reading copy.
