Epigramititis: 118 Living American Poets, by Kent Johnson

270 pages of epigrams and images topical to poets of our era

Praefatio by the author; Introductio by Dale Smith; Cauda by Gongora
(adapted from Plautus)

"Thanks for sending me the epigrams.* Superb. It's about time for
something of the sort, I'd say, what with the ass licking that rules the
day. Especially the ass-licking that some ass-lickers want to pass off
as "avant-garde confrontation." My salute... And as to your question,
well, yeah, absolutely: Olson, if he'd lived to see what has happened,
would have loved these."
--Ed Dorn
* from a response by Dorn to a batch of the first epigrams, sent to him
in early 1999.
