List price: $20.00 (Save 62%)
David Meltzer has carved out a singular position as a writer whose frame of reference has encompassed everything from pop culture to jazz to the Kabbalah. In this new edition of selected poems, editor Michael Rothenberg has created a "re-visioning" of Meltzer's oeuvre that offers a map for understanding his unique vision. David's Copy includes selections from every period of Meltzer's career - from the late 1960s when he expanded his view into the worlds of Jewish mysticism as well as Gnostic and pagan lore, to musically engaged pieces such as has recent book-length poem for Lester Young, No Eyes, to works like Beat Thing that chronicle his engagement in the political and cultural scene of the 1950s.
