98 Issues of the Poetry Project Newsletter
Poetry Project at St. Mark's, New York 2011 - Most issues 8 1/2 x 11", earlier issues mimeographed and stapled, later issues offset printed and saddle-stapled. This accumulation with issues 2-8, 13-15, 23-24, 26-30, 32-35, 36-38, 39-52, 67, 72-108, 110-112, 114, 115, 118, 121, 127, 128, 130, 132, 13, 138, 141, 143, 147, 148, 151, 153, 160, 162, 189, 227, 229. Some issues stamped and addressed to different recipients. A very substantial run (approximately 4") of one of the longest-running periodicals devoted to experimental poetry, which has been and remains a vital means of communication for New York poetry and an important chronicle of some of the more ephemeral events at the Poetry Project. The PPN expanded the notion of what a newsletter could be, including a large number of poems by prominent poets, some of which remain uncollected [a brief run through shows pieces by Ted Berrigan, Susan Howe, Robert Creeley, Ted Greenwald, Michael McClure, Larry Fagin, Eileen Myles, Yuki Hartman, David Shapiro, Paul Violi, Michael Lally, Glen Baxter, Dick Gallup, James Schuyler, Anne Waldman, Dennis Cooper, Anselm Hollo, et al] artwork, interviews, sketches, advertisements, notices, reviews of readings and gallery shows, speculations, etc - no other periodical of the time captures the minutiae of the poetic life and struggle for community in American poetry in such detail. "Over the years, the newsletter expanded to include poems, articles, columns, reviews, comics, ads, and calendars of Project events, becoming one of the few publications that regularly list and review poetry books from small- and medium-sized presses." - Ed Friedman, quoted in Clay & Phillips, p. 189. Earlier issues, when the mailing list remained small, are scarce, and this accumulation includes some of the toughest issues, dating back to when it was edited by Ron Padgett. Other editors represented here include Ted Greenwald, Bill Mac Kay, and Greg Masters. Generally very good to near fine, with the occasional checkmark or brief ink notation. The largest accumulation of the newsletter we've handled. Clay & Phillips p. 189.
