LEGEND: The Complete Facsimile in Context


Add your own review!

Overview

Conceived in 1976 and published in 1980, LEGEND exemplifies the political and linguistic commitments of then-nascent Language writing. Coauthored by Bruce Andrews, Charles Bernstein, Ray DiPalma, Steve McCaffery, and Ron Silliman, the work was composed on typewriters and developed through the mail. The twenty-six poems of the volume bring together every possible permutation of collaborative authorship in one-, two-, three-, and five-author combinations, revealing the evolution of distinctive styles against and in conversation with others. Along with a complete reproduction of the original text, LEGEND: The Complete Facsimile in Context includes a critical introduction by editors Matthew Hofer and Michael Golston, a generous selection of material from the authors' correspondence, and a new collaborative piece by the authors. This book will be an essential resource to students and scholars in twentieth-century poetry and poetics.

Reviews

LEGEND is justly legendary: a fugitive anthology as oversized in the mythic imagination of Language Poetry's history as its format. Comprising both the most radical and most typical impulses of the movement, it is a central text that simultaneously demarcates the outer peripheries of the mappable territory of the period's avant-garde. --Craig Dworkin, editor of The Consequence of Innovation: 21st Century Poetics
