Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976736411, Paperback)Jerome Rothenberg: Hannah Weiner's work, so lovingly presented here, brought her into the exploration of new ways & means for making poetry--a process by which she would have left her mark under any circumstances on avant-garde poetics & practice. The still more remarkable change in her later work came, spontaneously, with the onset of an experience, an ongoing alteration of perception in which visible words entered her field of vision--as cause of wonder & as messages to be included in the poems that followed. If her art both early & late insures her standing within the twentieth-century avant-garde, it connects her as well to the experience & writings of many traditional poet-mystics (clairvoyants in her word for them & for herself). It is, when taken as a whole, an achievement without precedent or comparison among her sometimes better-known contemporaries.
