5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry doesn't get much better than this., 10 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Louis Zukofsky: Selected Poems (American Poets Project) (Hardcover)
Louise Zukofsky is not very well known in Britain, but along with Williams and Olsen he is one of the most inventive poets of the 20th century.

This small volume is as good an introduction to Zukofsky's poetry as anything else. It contains a generous selection from all his published volumes (which are difficult to get hold of) including the homophonic translations of Catullus as well as a selection from his magnum opus `A' (in my opinion the greatest of all the long poems).

My only gripe is that this volume doesn't contain `Mantis', a beautiful, and highly original, sestina.

There is a great collection of Zukofsky's short poems that may be available on the marketplace, if this whets your appetite.
