The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree —

Nancy Perloff (daughter of Marjorie Perloff)

has edited an exceptional and dutifully global

appreciation of this diverse art form 

with an expert introduction by Perloff, along with

marvelous showcases by Augusto de Campos,

Ian Hamilton Finlay, Eugen Gomringer,

and now Susan Howe has entered the 

lexicon along with Dieter Roth and

many other naturals. 

Too bad Aram Saroyan wasn't included — 

the anthology is

missing that extra touch of play —

beautifully designed and with

fine detail on each biography.

The international breath

is the ticket.
