The forthcoming addition to Lisa Jarnot’s family has told her to lie down & chill, so she will not be at the Bowery Poetry Club on Saturday. Happily, Jennifer Bartlett has come to the rescue and will be reading with me tomorrow. You can read interviews with Jennifer here & here. And you can buy Derivative of the Moving Image here. Or read a review here.

1923                   &                   1970

There you have it. The ampersand is Harvey Brown’s intervention, and you can see immediately why it seems like such an integral part of that edition. Since it was the 1970 edition, not the original publication, that had the lasting impact on at least my generation of poets, I believe that I shall continue to use the ampersand when writing about the book generally, but will use “and” henceforth to distinguish the earlier edition.
