Mainly for collecters of Markson only...26 May 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
Markson's poetry is a little bit dated, but has a few pieces of true value. What I liked most is how it foreshadowed some of his later style in the ancedotal novels. A writer for the literary crowd, whose name drops don't mean anything if you aren't well read. This clearly isn't a book of poetry for everyone, but it was enjoyable. Even Markson in the introduction pokes fun at his style that is at times outmoded. Worth adding to a collection for a fan.
