About This Item

Ann Arbor, MI & Durham, CT: Burning Deck, 1965. First Edition. First edition. 212 pp. total. Stapled wraps. Issues 1-4, complete run. A little shelf wear, but Fine overall condition, clean and bright. The complete run of the experimental poetry journal connected with Burning Deck Press, which lasted from 1961 to 2017, printing avant garde poetry books and literature in translation. Bernard Waldrop, better known by his middle name Keith, co-founded the publication with his wife Rosmarie. She summarized the magazine's life for an interview with Words Without Borders:

"The magazine started in 1962. As we couldn't afford printing costs, Keith and I bought a letterpress and learned to set type and print by trial, much error and some professional advice. Friends were rounded up for collating and stapling parties. The mag was planned as a "quinterly." But instead of five times a year it came out only four times in five years. By this time the three editors had scattered to teaching jobs in different areas, and mailing manuscripts back and forth (this was before email!) had become too slow and cumbersome to continue. This made us switch to pamphlets edited by Keith and me and appearing irregularly, whenever we could get around to printing them."

Includes work by W.S. Merwin, Philip Levine, Robert Creeley, Barbara Guest, Robert Duncan, LeRoi Jones, Louis Zukofsky, and Denise Levertov.
