Product Overview

Acconci's early writing recalls the work of Samuel Beckett, the deadpan voice of the "nouveau roman," and the jump cuts and fraught permutations of the "nouvelle vague," Poems in "Language to Cover a Page" explore the materiality of language ("language as matter and not ideas," as Robert Smithson put it), the physical space of the page, and the physicality of source texts (phonebooks, thesauruses, dictionaries). Other poems take the space of the page as an analogue to performance space or implicate the poem in a network of activity (as in his "Dial-a-Poem" pieces). Readers will find Acconci's inventive and accomplished poetry as edgy and provocative as anything published today.
