The major strains of thought in the worlds of avant garde art and music were influenced by the writings of these three pioneering and revolutionary thinkers. Andre Breton penned The Surrealist... More > Manifesto in 1924, setting the art world on its ear with his philosophy of chance occurrences, strange juxtapositions and dream-logic, as a furtherance of a new and more vital art. Hugo Ball, one of the masterful renegades behind the DADA art movement, penned his manifesto to rebellion and absurdism in 1916, as a protest to the inhuman and barbaric war being raged across the face of the world. Finally, radical Futurist composer Luigi Russolo, who began recording lavatory noises as a droning, ambient form of music, laid out his philosophy of "noise composition" in his revolutionay and classic piece, The Art of Noises (1914), which predates the rise of electronic music and industrial music by many decades. Bold, illuminating, and provocative, these timeless intellectual offerings are presented here for the modern reader.< Less

This seventh collection of essays and reviews kicks off with a survey of some overlooked British poets from the 1940s who, through a network of little magazines with anarchist inclinations, attempted... More > to offer an alternative to the MacSpaunDay generation’s sensibilities. Another piece considers how British writers were monitored by MI5 and local police forces, while a third switches attention to the USA and looks at the still-controversial case of Alger Hiss and his alleged role as a spy who passed information to Russia. There are essays about lesser-known Beat-related writers like Bob Kaufman and Brion Gysin, inspections of some little magazines of the 1950s and 1960s, and two long reviews which consider the effect that Dadaism had and the role played in the movement by Tristan Tzara. Walt Whitman, Woody Guthrie, and Malcolm Cowley also make an appearance.< Less
Anarchists, Beats and Dadaists By Jim Burns
eBook (ePub): $2.82
This seventh collection of essays and reviews follows on from the previous six in bringing together what I like to think is largely a sur-vey of mostly lesser-known writers, poets, artists,... More > musicians, and related people and their publications. Some names in the list of con-tents will be immediately identifiable, but it could be that certain aspects of their work may not be familiar to most readers. Walt Whitman’s links to a group of early American bohemians is an ex-ample of what I’m suggesting. As with the previous books, the Beats have a central role, though I hope I’ve looked at a few lesser-known poets, such as Bob Kaufman, along with pieces on Kerouac and Lawrence Ferlinghetti.< Less

Ellipsis and Pause By Erjan J. Slavin
Paperback: $4.88
Prints in 3-5 business days
Ellipsis and Pause is a reflection on the limitations and proscribed use of allegorical language, such as ought to be found in the work of poets, in so far as language--as well as implicit or... More > intrinsic silence--is the medium used by these types of workers in their architectures. As the tools of these men and women can neither build the Unbuilt itself, nor restore the unbuilt, the unbuildable, or even the built to memory in the effigies we know as words, the re-enactment of that spectacular effort must happen through each of us inside, and then shared in symbolic ways through the means of the economy of gestures that are proper to each person, based on what is common and not in need of words. This work completes the cycle, which had begun in 2014 with Among Other Things. The awe this work invokes through the negative and positive of each part or line...is what earlier works had done spatially on the page. It is a shredded book on clean, bound paper that yields you more to where you are than to itself.< Less
