Description
Poetry. Having already established his poetry among the most inventive ever, the distinguished man of avant-garde letters Richard Kostelanetz realizes further radically formal steps in THREE POEMS. Each is a sequence of one-word texts continuously interleaved with the others in an unprecedented way, in sum offering an unprecedented reading experience. The book concludes with Kostelanetz's visual essay "Poetry I Shall Not Make." For work of this kind he has earned individual entries in the Readers Guide to Twentieth-Century Writers, Contemporary Poets, and Britannica.com, among other highly selective directories.

"I sense the strength of the narrative (and there are many narratives throughout) to be elastic or plastic: how the reader molds it in his/her/my/your mind." John Robert Colombo.
