Jack Spicer Books, Jack Spicer poetry book Doubled Flowering from the Notebooks of Araki Yasusada Authors: Araki Yasusada, Kent Johnson
Published Date: 1997
Categories: Poetry
Poetry. Literary Criticism. Asian American Studies. The materials of the Japanese poet Araki Yasusada (1907-1972) were published in Grand Street, CONJUNCTIONS, Abiko Quarterly, FIRST INTENSITY, Stand and The American Poetry Review. Gradually, the rumor began circulating that Araki Yasusada did not exist and that the poems were a hoax perpetrated by the Japanese-American author Tosa Motokiyu or by his literary executor, the American poet Kent Johnson. "The 'scandal' of these poems lies not in the problematics of authorship, identity, persona, race or history. Rather, these are wonderful works of writing that also invoke all of these other issues, never relying on them to prop up a text. This book makes the argument for anti-essentialism"--Ron Silliman. "This is essentially a criminal act"--Arthur Vogelsang.

Fiction. An established writer from an Eastern college returning to his former San Francisco haunts becomes entangled in a labyrinthine series of events that culminate in the sudden violent death of a respected poet. Described by Lewis Ellingham and Kevin Killian as "a satiric look at the private world of poetry gone public in the wake of the Six Gallery HOWL reading of October, 1955," THE TOWER OF BABEL includes finely detailed sketches of the San Francisco poetry world and gay life as they existed then.

Categories: English poetry
Jack Gilbert is a major figure in American poetry, but has always been a total outsider, defiantly unfashionable and publishing only four books in five decades. Initially associated with the Beats, he left America after winning the Yale Younger Poets Prize with "Views of Jeopardy" in 1962, eking out a living for many years on Greek islands. His second collection, "Monolithos", appeared twenty years later in 1982, but he made his strongest impression on American readers with the late work published in his last two books, "The Great Fires" (1994) and "Refusing Heaven" (2005), winner of the prestigious National Book Critics Circle Award.

Matthew Prior Poem
On A Picture Of Seneca Dying In A Bath, By Jordain
 by Matthew Prior

While cruel Nero only drains
The moral Spaniard's ebbing veins,
By study worn, and slack with age,
How dull, how thoughtless is his rage!
Heighten'd revenge he should have took,
He should have burnt his tutor's book;
And long have reign's supreme in vice;
One noble wretch can only rise;
