About this product
- DescriptionThe work of Louis Zukofsky has been gaining exposure as a new generation of poets and scholars rediscover the American avant-garde tradition. Concurrently, interest in Guillaume Apollinaire's has grown in recent years as English departments re-explore international modernism. In this extended essay, Louis Zukofsky provides readings of the French modernist's entire oeuvre and offers insights into his own formative aesthetic. Two sections of the essay were published in Westminster Magazine in 1932, but the complete work is available here. The text builds its arguments with extensive quotations from Apollinaire's poems in their original French.
- Author BiographyLouis Zukofsky (1904-1978) is widely considered one of the primary forerunners of contemporary avant-garde writing. His many books include A, Prepositions +, and A Test of Poetry.
