Aimless Reading: The C's, Part 39.14 (Robert Creeley)

Creeley, Robert
The Collected Essays
of Robert Creeley

I bought this online for sure. It was really hard to find for a while, may still be for all I know. I mainly bought it because Bob had asked me to put together an updated bio, bibliography and selection of statements of poetics for Jacket -- which lead to the bright idea of doing a section on his work for one of the upcoming issues.

You can read the selection of statements I chose here:

His response to my choices was to the point, "Dear Mike, Those are an active set of statements."

Well put.
