A Sulfur Anthology, Paperback / softback Book

A Sulfur Anthology Paperback / softback

Edited by Clayton Eshleman

Description

From 1981 to 2000, Sulfur magazine presented an American and international overview of innovative writing across forty-six issues, totaling some 11,000 pages and featuring over eight hundred writers and artists, including Norman O.

Brown, Jorie Graham, James Hillman, Mina Loy, Ron Padgett, Octavio Paz, Ezra Pound, Adrienne Rich, Rainer Maria Rilke, and William Carlos Williams.

Each issue featured a diverse offering of poetry, translations, previously unpublished archival material, visual art, essays, and reviews.

Sulfur was a hotbed for critical thinking and commentary, and also provided a home for the work of unknown and younger poets.

In the course of its twenty year run, Sulfur maintained a reputation as the premier publication of alternative and experimental writing.

This was due in no small measure to its impressive masthead of contributing editors and correspondents: Marjorie Perloff, James Clifford, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Keith Tuma, Allen Weiss, Jed Rasula, Charles Bernstein, Michael Palmer, Clark Coolidge, Jayne Cortez, Marjorie Welish, Jerome Rothenberg, Eliot Weinberger, managing editor Caryl Eshleman, and founding editor Clayton Eshleman. A Sulfur Anthology offers readers an expanded view of artistic activity at the century's end.

It's also a luminous document of international poetic vision.

Many of the contributions have never been published outside of Sulfur, making this an indispensible collection of poetry in translation, and poetry in the world.
