Concrete Poetry. A World View.

Solt, Mary Ellen, ed. 


The first comprehensive survey of the international movement of concrete poetry. The editor has selected over one hundred thirty concrete poems and texts, some of them in colour, giving the reader a widely representative selection of the work being done by concrete poets throughout the world. A section of manifestos and statements on concrete poetry by Eugen Gomringer, the Noigrandes group, Öyvind Fahlström, Max Bense, Pierre Garnier, Henri Chopin, Paul de Vree, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Jonathan Williams makes the volume an indispensable source book for the international movement of concrete poetry. — Publisher’s blurb.
