An Anthology of Concrete Poetry
After four decades, Something Else Press’s seminal An Anthology of Concrete Poetry is back in print. Originally published in 1967, it was the first comprehensive American anthology focusing on the international movement of Concrete Poetry, which began in the early 50s, taking shape in parallel form in Brazil, Sweden, Iceland, Germany and Austria.
Sourcing from seventy-seven poets from twenty countries, this anthology of over 300 selections of concrete poetry stands out in its scope in part from being assembled by Emmett Williams, a founder of this poetic movement. The international array of languages is supplemented by clear-cut explanations and translations. The typographical poems impart an engagingly mysterious insight into the inner workings of language through the intersection of its sonic and graphic components.
