The Collected Prose of Robert Creeley

Berkeley and Los Angeles, CA: University of California Press, 1988 (1984). First Edition Thus Softcover. Softcover. "The Collected Prose of Robert Creeley" assembles Creeley's most successful forays into the prose genre as represented by his publications "The Gold Diggers and Other Stories," his novel "The Island," and "Listen," his experimental radio play which first appeared in Germany. Also included under the heading "Mabel: A Story" are sections of "A Day Book," "Presences" (his collaboration with pop-artist Marisol Escobar) concluding with "Mabel: A Story." These selections examine the too often overlooked prose output Robert Creeley developed while he continued to cultivate himself as a poet early on. Creeley's concurrent growth and experimentation with these forms endowed his sense of structure and line-length that he has been aptly praised for. From the library of Ken & Ann Mikolowski, close friends of Robert Creeley & founders of Detroit's "Alternative Press," publishers of many Beat/New York School/Black Mountain-related authors.
