Ted Berrigan: An Annotated Checklist by Aaron Fischer

 


 

Ted Berrigan: An Annotated Checklist


ISBN: 1-887123-40-7 (trade paper) $12.00

"The book starts out dense, vagrant, proceeding on a combination of automatic writing and methodical structural repetitions. It picks up speed, changes gears from poetry to prose and back again, tries out a sestina where both beginning and ending words recur. Then something explodes midway through the book, as though all this formal experimentation was the rumbling and smoldering of Mt. Saint Helens erupting over the circumstances of Bernadette Mayer's move back to the Lower East Side from New Hampshire, where what was menace in the air of rural America is met head-on in the New York of Reagan and Wall Street. Two Haloed Mourners is a memoir of fear and loathing as the seventies somersault into the eighties. It's also about not shutting down, as a person, in the midst of that." —Ange Mlinko, Poetry Project Newsletter
