Boston Review" Bookforum" The Los Angeles Times" "As a measure of our historical distance from Spicer's personality, a new generation of editors, the poets Peter Gizzi and Kevin Killian, moves beyond the Spicer 'legend' in order to present the full range of his poetry to readers both familiar and unfamiliar with his work."--Zach Finch "Boston Review" (11/1/2008 12:00:00 AM) "My Vocabulary Did This To Me ... These final words serve as an apt title for Peter Gizzi and Kevin Killian's wonderfully edited Spicer collection, the first thorough gathering of the poet's extraordinary and challenging writing to appear since the '70s."--Erik Davis "Bookforum" (1/1/2009 12:00:00 AM) "You finish My Vocabulary Did This to Me feeling you've come in contact with an original artist and a genuine one, a writer who is, to borrow from Wordsworth, 'fierce, moody, patient, venturous, modest, shy'. You also finish the book thinking that these poems are ready to find a new audience."--Dwight Garner "The New York Times" (12/24/2008 12:00:00 AM) "His vocabulary did indeed do this to him, but perhaps with this handsome edition, love and reappraisal will let him go on."--Edward Champion "The Los Angeles Times" (12/23/2008 12:00:00 AM) "Spicer is an interesting poet on several levels, all of them deep and rich with deposits that reward an earnest dig. He is, I think, on a par with Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams in grilling the elaborative infrastructure of how we draw or are drawn to specialized conclusions with the use of metaphor, and it is to his particular brilliance as a lyric poet, comparable to Frank O'Hara ... that the contradictions, competing desires and unexpected conundrums of investigating one's verbal stream are made comprehensible to the senses, a joy to the ear. No one, really no one wrote as distinctly as the long obscure Spicer did, and editors Gizzi, Killian, and publisher Wesleyan Press are to be thanked for restoring a major American voice to our shared canon."--Ted Butler, Oyster Boy Review "His vocabulary did indeed do this to hi, but perhaps with this handsome edtion, love and reappraisal will let him go on."--Edward Champion, The Los Angeles Times "My Vocabulary Did This To Me...These final words serve as an apt title for Peter Gizzi and Kevin Killian's wonderfully edited Spicer collection, the first thorough gathering of the poet's extraordinary and challenging writing to appear since the '70s."--Erik Davis, Bookforum His vocabulary did indeed do this to hi, but perhaps with this handsome edtion, love and reappraisal will let him go on. Edward Champion, The Los Angeles Times" You finish My Vocabulary Did This to Me feeling you ve come in contact with an original artist and a genuine one, a writer who is, to borrow from Wordsworth, fierce, moody, patient, venturous, modest, shy. You also finish the book thinking that these poems are ready to find a new audience.

Reseña del editor:

In 1965, when the poet Jack Spicer died at the age of forty, he left behind a trunkful of papers and manuscripts and a few copies of the seven small books he had seen to press. A West Coast poet, his influence spanned the national literary scene of the 1950s and '60s, though in many ways Spicer's innovative writing ran counter to that of his contemporaries in the New York School and the West Coast Beat movement. Now, more than forty years later, Spicer's voice is more compelling, insistent, and timely than ever. During his short but prolific life, Spicer troubled the concepts of translation, voice, and the act of poetic composition itself. My Vocabulary Did This to Me is a landmark publication of this essential poet's life work, and includes poems that have become increasingly hard to find and many published here for the first time.
