Dick Higgins - Poems And Metapoems

Dick Higgins - Poems And Metapoems

$21.00

Presenting “polyartist,” poet, performer, composer, Fluxus co-founder and owner/operator of Something Else Press: the ever-playful and audacious Dick Higgins!

An unsayably influential figure and a regular presence in our space largely thanks to this collection, which Sean McCann released on Recital in 2017 (and which we keep amply stocked). Poems & Metapoems captures Higgins’ readings of his own poetry: repetitious, pattern-based games of language and voice spoken with admiral clarity in warm, welcoming tones.

Originally published as a cassette tape by Charlie Morrow’s New Wilderness Audiographics in 1982, the recording collects poems conceived between 1958-1980, including classic, earwormish favorites like “I Am, Hello,” and “Long Tail for Jessie.”
