Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before suspending publication earlier this year, Andrei Codrescu's controversial and notorious anti-literary literary magazine Exquisite Corpse had become a primary site of engaged dialogue among the non, brain-dead everywhere. Founded in the 1980s on the belief that "American literature, poetry in particular, is sick from lack of public debate, " Codrescu's Corpse took its title from cadavre exquis, a form of collaboration once much practiced in Paris surrealist circles.<P>Rebellion, passion and black humo became the journal's trademarks. Anti-conformist polemic, poetics of assault, high-tone bohemianism, muckraking speculation, seditious attitudinizing and wandering reports from the front lines and back alleys of the culture jammed each issue, framed by elegant columns of top-flight new poetry.
