Format: Hardcover
1969'S Pieces is my favorite book by my favorite poet, Robert Creeley.

There are some wonderful poems in Pieces, but that is not the point. Format is. The longer poems are laid out top to bottom of page--left margin--next to short poems, or phrases and fragments that I also consider poems.

Things come and go--
then let them.


Those are two scraps from Pieces. Creeley developed a real ability to take a few words, give no context, and lay them on the page so they draw the starkest of pictures. Take the second selection: someone is going someplace, but who and where is your call. So little writing, so much possibility.

Down the page the thoughts concrete imagery and poetry goes. As if your in Creeley's head, using his eye. It is stream of thought and sight.

I am not sure how much this experimental feel had to do with it being 1969, but Creeley continued to use techniques like this--in more moderation--into the 1990s

This whole book is also in The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley, 1945-1975.
