This present, international and most comprehensive volume to date assembles work representative of the years from 1942 to 2001 and includes Cobbing’s first solo CD.
Along with concrete, visual and sound poems (and fusions of the same), some were also recorded, e.g., in their verbal reflectivity and verse combinations forge links to familiar modernist writing methods.
They allow the reader as a self-perceptive auditor to oscillate between referential-semantic and sound-associative levels.
The selections here was Bob Cobbing’s own — in collaboration with the editor. — From the publisher.
