Age of Huts (Compleat) by Ron Silliman

Book Description

Between the Age of Innocence and the Age of Experience comes The Age of Huts. This book brings together for the first time all of the poems in Ron Silliman's Age of Huts cycle, including Ketjak, Sunset Debris, The Chinese Notebook, and 2197, as well as two key satellite texts, Sitting Up, Standing, Taking Steps, and BART. Each poem offers a radically different approach toward using language to explore the world. One of the founding works of Language Poetry, The Age of Huts is about everything, more or less literally, as each sentence, even each phrase, embarks on its own narrative, linking together to form a large polyphonic investigation of contemporary life. From Ketjak, one of the first poems to employ 'the new sentence,' to 2197, a serial work that scrambles the vocabulary and grammar of its sentences, "The Age of Huts" questions everything we have known about poetry in order to see the world anew.

Books By Author Ron Silliman

Under Albany by Ron Silliman Under Albany, Paperback (November 2004)

Small Press Traffic "Book of the Year 2004". This memoir provides an exquisitely rich exploration of the relation of context to reference, subtext to meaning, back story to presented experience, and composition to poetics. Silliman's work unravels and reforms in this exemplary and exhilarating act of attention and reflection.

Sophist by Ron Silliman Sophist, Paperback (September 2004)

A pivotal book for Bernstein, The Sophist demonstrated his great range of subject matter, style, and genre. By contrasting wildly different approaches to poetry, Bernstein not only questions the intrinsic value of any given form but also provides a model for his later heterogeneous books.

Tjanting by Ron Silliman Tjanting, Paperback (September 2002)

Silliman's major long poem published in a new edition and introduced by Barrett Watten. Tjanting abounds in a wealth of cultural reference and explores the strategies and procedures of constructing a reality in language. This classic text will delight readers and provide students of modern American poetry with a key work of the late 20th Century.

Veil by Ron Silliman Veil, Paperback (October 2001)
