Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

RIBOT has established itself over the past 10 years as one of the most exciting literary and arts publications from around the world. In this appearance, the annual will address the problematic of leisure or idleness in our ravenously consumptive, multi-national society, as originally explored by Paul Lafargue's notorious 1883 essay from St. Pelagie prison. Contributors include Amiri Baraka, John Baldessari, Guy Bennett, Frank Chin, Jeff Clark, Norma Cole, Corrado Costa, Douglas Messerli, Dennis Phillips, Leslie Scalapino, and many others.

Book News Annotation:

A great anthology, doing for the fin de siecle what Donald Allen's The New American Poetry (1960) did for the post-WWII period: reveal what is new and different and decidedly apart from the academy. The principal competition is Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology, edited by Paul Hoover. Each has its merits. Both are essential to every collection.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
