Revolution of the Word: A New Gathering of American Avant Garde Poetry, 1914-1945 written by Jerome Rothenberg

 

Revolution of the Word: A New Gathering of American Avant Garde Poetry, 1914-1945 written by Jerome Rothenberg

Overview:

Jerome Rothenberg has raised the anthology to an art form. His most recent publication, Poems for the Millennium (University of California Press, 1995) reevaluates modernism from a global perspective. Shaking the Pumpkin (1972) and America a Prophecy (1973) diversified the canon long before "multi-culturalism." And his 1974 Revolution of the Word remains an unparalleled collection of American avant-garde writing from between the wars. Nearly twenty-five years after its first publication, this long out-of-print collection is still xeroxed for college courses because it contains works that are otherwise unavailable (by Else von Freytag-Loringhoven, Abraham Lincoln Gillespie, et al.), and because it places some of the most popular writers of the century - e.e cummings, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein - in their original context: the anarchistic experimentation of early modernism.

Authors include: Walter Conrad Arensberg, Bob Brown, e. e. cummings, H. D. (Hilda Doolittle), Marcel Duchamp, T. S. Eliot, Else von Freytag-Loringhoven, Marsden Hartley, Mina Loy, Marianne Moore, Ezra Pound, Carl Sandburg, Gertrude Stein, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Hart Crane, Harry Crosby, Robert Duncan, Kenneth Fearing, Charles Henri Ford, Abraham Lincoln Gillespie, Eugene Jolas, Walter Lowenfels, Jackson Mac Low, Charles Olson, George Oppen, Kenneth Patchen, Kenneth Rexroth, Charles Reznikoff, Laura Riding, Louis Zukofsky

Synopsis:

Jerome Rothenberg has raised the anthology to an art form.

And his 1974 Revolution of the Word remains an unparalleled collection of American avant-garde writing from between the wars.
