42 Merzgedichte

42 Merzgedichte

Published 1994

Jackson Mac Low

Written in memory of the German collagist, painter, sculptor, and writer, Kurt Schwitters (who referred to all of his works as "Merz," a syllable taken from the advertisement for the Kommerzund Privatbank and included in all his earliest assemblages), this is a series of visually arresting verbal collages from America's foremost experimental poet of the last 30 years. Lacing together words, word fragments, and phrases—all relating to Schwitters and his work, some computer generated—this is a landmark celebration of the Dada spirit in modern poetry. 42 Merzgedichte is yet another masterful work from the inventor of a prolific range of systematic chance operations for poetry and one of the most unique voices of modern literature.
