    Long out of print, 'A' is the monumental life-poem by one of the most influential poets of the 20th century. Louis Zukofsky's (1904-1978) poem brims over with daily love, light, intellect and music, expressing a new potency of poetic language to comprehend and counter-form the maddening expansion of human neglect wrought by the 20th century's post-industrial, almost post-cultural, entropy. Zukofsky registers 'a new music of verse stretching out into the future.' (William Carlos Williams) - a surging tropism of possibility re-formed. Index of Names and Objects. 826p.
