About This Item

Victoria, TX: Chax Press, 2015. First printing. 335 pp., large square 8vo. Perfect-bound in illustrated wrappers. Edited by Anne Tardos and Michael O'Driscoll, with preface, introduction, and notes. New.

The long-awaited collection of all sixty of the poet's "Light Poems," a form that he devised in the early 1960s and returned to intermittently for more than twenty-five years. Each of the "intensely biographical" poems is dedicated to a close friend or colleague, and all feature Mac Low's unique blend of concreteness and contingency. A third of the poems are previously unpublished; another third had only ephemeral or periodical publication prior to this collection.

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance.
