About the Author

Craig Dworkin is the author of Reading the Illegible (Northwestern, 2003), and the editor of Architectures of Poetry (2004), Language to Cover a Page: The Early Writing of Vito Acconci (2006), The Consequence of Innovation: 21st Century Poetics (2008), and, with Marjorie Perloff, The Sound of Poetry/The Poetry of Sound (2009).

Kenneth Goldsmith’s writing has been called "some of the most exhaustive and beautiful collage work yet produced in poetry" by Publishers Weekly. Goldsmith is the author of ten books of poetry. He teaches writing at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is a senior editor of PennSound, an online poetry archive.

Format: Paperback
Dworkin and Goldsmith provide a solid start for one to look at or teach Conceptual Writing today. This anthology is best paired with the Les Figues Press book which came out about a year after this, as well as Vanessa Place's writings on Conceptualisms. This massive volume tries to get it all in there, and as such may lack a bit of a pathway for newcomers while at the same time providing a crazy richness and variety which will likely allow pretty much any reader to find something in here which speaks to them and sparks their interest. It includes writing primarily from the US and Europe, and even decided to leave a few texts in their original languages. Its far-reaching historical scope also does a lot to remind readers--be they authors, aspiring authors, scholars or readers who just love reading--of the fact that Conceptual Writing as Goldsmith and Dworkin see and definite is not something that has suddenly popped out of the woodwork, but rather is something that has been here for a long time and needed to be acknowledged, regrouped, and examined. This anthology provides a first tool to that end. To see a full length review of this book, covering both pros and cons in depth, feel free to read my longwinded reflections on it in DrunkenBoat at [...] Regardless, I do think it is well worth the purchase and at a nicely discounted Amazon price, well, no complaints there, right? It will be well worth your pennies.
