Robert Kelly: A California Journal
This product is currently sold out.
Poetry edition by Robert Kelly, organized according to the concepts of space and time––a moment––and the poetry that happens there. His poems are halted in northern California, in steely April, 1969. The effect is a generative one; a poetry that begins with the date and a landscape to, midway, invite the speaker to reel over the mountains into a place Kelly has made to grant his language the permission it needs to speak from an unphysical, meditative and emotional world. He experiments with the form on the page at certain intervals, and moves more freely from the physical world to what could be called phantasy, evoking images of the Devil to describe the inside of his mind. The book's text is sharp and beautifully printed, and but for the slight shelf wear expected on construction paper, the edition is a quirky diary it feigns to be.
