Epigramititis : 118 Living American Poets Kent Johnson BlazeVOX [books]

 "Thanks for sending me the epigrams.* Superb. It's about time for something of the sort, I'd say, what with the ass licking that rules the day. Especially the ass-licking that some ass-lickers want to pass off as "avant-garde confrontation." My salute... And as to your question, well, yeah, absolutely: Olson, if he'd lived to see what has happened, would have loved these."

    Ed Dorn

* from a response by Dorn to a batch of the first epigrams, sent to him in early 1999.
