    We used this as a course text at Naropa this summer and I came to appreciate it as a resource once again. Nicely various, with tons of meaty writing--essays or talks by Ted Berrigan, Barbara Guest, Robin Blaser, Bev Dahlen, Reed Bye, Steve Dickson all come to mind as worthy, but there's much more as well.

    I really enjoyed the discussion between Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Robert Creeley, Michael Ondaatje, and Robin Blaser... I wish that part had been longer. I'm about to read Peter Lamborn Wilson's essay "Hieroglyphics and Money." I really enjoyed the discussion between Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Robert Creeley, Michael Ondaatje, and Robin Blaser...
