Transit No. 19

Coventry, England: The Beat Scene Press, 2008. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. In the Summer 2008 issue of "Transit" magazine from The Beat Scene Press, David Meltzer & Diane di Prima kick off the issue with valuable poems; Meltzer's a long, wailing blues epic & di Prima's two short little lightning-bolt poems are intriguing, fragmentary crumbs. Jack Foley delivers an excellent short essay on Charles Olson & "Projective Verse," Olson's immortal essay which still today is grabbing poets by their collars and wrestling them into shape. The issue closes with an inventive, imaginative poem from Barry Gifford. Yet another excellent Beat Scene Press publication. Book in very fine condition with only slight shelf-wear throughout; minor rusting to staples; minute bumps at all corners esp. top, bottom right-hand corners of front cover, bottom left corner of back cover. Very Fine. [Item #2697]
