Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I am always conscious of the disquieting runs of life slipping by," writes Lyn Hejinian in the Preface to this major early work of poetry. "Necessity is the limit with forgetfulness, but it remains undefined. Memory is the girth, or again." In this incredible work, Hejinian takes the idea of memory as something repeated, or "a gain," something that contributes and advances presentness.

First published by The Figures in 1978, this work has long been unavailable and has been highly sought by the numerous readers and students of Hejinian's work. Her works My Life, The Cell, and The Cold of Poetry are taught in universities internationally, and have created a large audience for her writing. Writing Is an Aid to Memory will make available, once again, an important part of her oeuvre.

Synopsis:

This volume restores to print one of the major texts of Language Poetry. Published initially in 1978, this work questions the idea of identity, presenting the voice as an ever-evolving entity.

Synopsis:

Hejinian's important collection of poetry from 1978, available again.
