The Granary Books Language Writing Collection

September 2014

The Granary Books Language Writing Collection comprises approximately 1,200 items including books, pamphlets, magazines, broadsides, manuscripts, letters, and ephemera, presenting a rigorous and comprehensive survey of the most influential American avant-garde literary development of the last 50 years. The Collection chronicles the group’s inception in the seventies, maturation in the eighties, and influence through the nineties and beyond, and provides the basis for in-depth scholarly research in recent experimental poetry and poetics; literary production and community; and independent small press publishing. The work of nearly 50 poets central to Language Writing has been collected along with more than 50 runs of little magazines associated with the movement.

Many items come from the personal libraries of such poets as Charles Bernstein, Bernadette Mayer, Clark Coolidge, Maureen Owen, Lewis Warsh and Leslie Scalapino, and often bear significant inscriptions and other associations. Of particular note is the is the presentation of extensive material documenting the pre-history and emergence of the central players and publications that established the group’s character in the early seventies, from seminal moments—such as Robert Grenier’s “I HATE SPEECH” piece in This, no. 1 (1971) and the appearance of “The Dwelling Place: 9 Poets,” the first conscious grouping and naming of the “language-centered” poets, edited by Ron Silliman in 1973 and published in Alcheringa (1975)—to the establishment of Tuumba Press by Lyn Hejinian and L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E magazine by Charles Bernstein and Bruce Andrews.

Steve Clay, owner of Granary Books and publisher of a number of key figures associated with Language Writing, assembled The Language Writing Collection over two decades. It would be nearly impossible to assemble such a collection today.

Barrett Watten and Robert Grenier, eds.
This
, no. 1, Winter 1971.
Saddle-stitched.
Complete run nos. 1–12, 1971–82.

As noted by Ron Silliman in his introduction to In the American Tree:

"I HATE SPEECH" — Robert Grenier

"Thus capitalized, these words in an essay entitled "On Speech," the second of five short critical pieces by Robert Grenier in the first issue of This, the magazine he cofounded with Barrett Watten in winter, 1971, announced a breach - and a new moment in American writing.”
[Ref AT p. xv]

Silliman has said that Language Writing began with Grenier’s iconic statement in This, no. 1 and ended when Poetics Journal, no. 1 was issued perfect bound rather than 8 ½ x 11 inch stapled as originally planned and produced (then suppressed) in favor of the more conventional format. (See Poetics Journal below.)

.

Jerome Rothenberg and Dennis Tedlock, eds.
Alcheringa (new series), vol. 1, no. 2, 1975.
Perfect bound.

This issue of Alcheringa includes a section edited by Ron Silliman in 1973, “The Dwelling Place: 9 Poets.” Silliman’s introductory note: “9 poets out of the present, average age 28, whose work might be said to ‘cluster’ about such magazines as This, Big Deal, Tottel's, the recent Doones supplements, the Andrews-edited issue of Toothpick, etc. Called variously ‘language centered,’ ‘minimal,’ ‘nonreferential formalism,’ ‘diminished referentiality,’ ‘structuralist.’ Not a group but a tendency in the work of many.”

[Ref AL p. 104]

.

Ron Silliman.
Moon in the 7th House, Gunrunner Press, 1968.
Saddle-stitched.

The poet’s very rare first book, published by poet/printer Jim Sorcic, who was also the poetry editor for Kaleidoscope, Milwaukee’s underground magazine. Crow, Silliman’s second book, was published by Ithaca House in 1971. Ithaca House was a small press founded by Cornell Professor Baxter Hathaway in 1969. Approximately 100 titles were produced (via letterpress) over 15 years including first or early titles by Silliman, Ray DiPalma, Tom Mandel, David Melnick, and Bob Perelman.

.

Ron Silliman, ed.
Tottel’s
, no. 13, [ca. 1972].
Stapled upper left corner.

Tottel’s ran for 18 issues, 1970­­–81. This entire issue is devoted to publishing “20 from PCOET” by David Melnick. Silliman’s mimeographed magazine was named after the first anthology of English poetry, Tottel’s Miscellany in 1557, and most issues were devoted to the work of a single poet, among them Robert Grenier, Clark Coolidge, Ray DiPalma, Bruce Andrews, and Steve Benson.

.

Bruce Andrews and Charles Bernstein, eds. L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, vol. 1, no 1, Feb. 1978.
Saddle-stitched.

L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E was a magazine of information and commentary that grew out of personal exchanges about poetics in letters, conversations, and public talks among a group of poets in New York, San Francisco, and Washington. The magazine ran from 1978–81. There were thirteen issues, three supplements and a table of contents in vols. 1–3; vol. 4 was published as a book-length issue of the Canadian journal Open Letter. In 1984 Southern Illinois University Press published The L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E Book, an anthology that included about half of the contents of the magazine.

.

Charles Bernstein.
Parsing
, Asylum’s Press, 1976.
Side-stapled wrappers.
Cover by Susan Laufer [Bee].

Inscribed to Steve Clay by Bernstein: “My first second book February 1996.”

Parsing is preceded by Asylums (Asylum’s Press, 1975) a collection assembled for a workshop taught by Bernadette Mayer. The inscription in Parsing references a conversation between Bernstein and Clay about what constitutes the poet’s first book. Bernstein argued that Asylums was not intended as a book, merely a workshop assignment, while Parsing was consciously assembled as a book. Clay held that Asylums would likely be seen as the poet’s first book since it carried a publisher’s name (albeit the poet’s own press) and date and was issued in an edition. There are nearly 90 Bernstein items in the collection.

.

Bruce Andrews.
Edge, Some of Us Press, 1973.
Stapled wrappers.
This is from an edition of 500 copies.

The poet’s first book was published by the collectively run Some of Us Press (SOUP) which grew out of the Mass Transit Poetry Readings at the Washington, D.C. “anti-profit” Community Bookshop. The collection contains more than 30 Andrews items.

.

Bruce Andrews, Charles Bernstein, Ray DiPalma,
Steve McCaffery, and Ron Silliman.
Legend
, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E / Segue, 1980.
Wrappers.
Cover by Betsi Bradfass.

A book-length collaborative work, “LEGEND consists of twenty-six sections in systematic compositional groups: five single-authored sections by each of the five authors, ten double-authored sections by every combination of the five authors, ten triple-authored sections by every combination of the five authors, and one section by all five authors. The recognizability of each author’s contributions is consistently effaced by the sublimation of subjectivity to each collaborative section’s unifying formal characteristics, which enables complementary group performance strategies. The book’s systematicity is reflected in the logic of the selections for the reading: two double-authored sections, three triple-authored sections, and the quintuple-authored section.”

The Pronouns was brilliantly illustrated by British artist, printer, and publisher Ian Tyson and issued in 1971. Jackson Mac Low (1922–2005) was by far the oldest poet publishing in the Language Writing context and his long experience working with chance operations and non-intentional writing methods along with his characteristic openness to the new made him an important progenitor and supporter for many of the poets based in New York.

Hannah Weiner is “…the only person on record…to have experienced the particular phenomenon this journal represents, that of being ‘spoken to’ by several persons, most of them seemingly external to herself, by means of printed words in various colors & sizes that appear both on others persons & objects & on her own forehead (in such a way that she can perceive them from within). Hers, however, might have been but a ‘remarkable case,’ were it not for the fact that she is an artist. Her achievement—& it is a considerable one—lies in her having developed a specific literary form through which to convey her remarkable experience.” Jackson Mac Low

[Ref SL p. 241]

Appendix

.

1. Who Are the Language Poets?

The graph below was created by Steve Clay as one way to answer the question: Who Are the Language Poets? It illustrates whose work was included (and how often) in four of the movement’s primary anthologies. The publication dates roughly bracket the period within which the group was most active:

ALCHERINGA “The Dwelling Place: 9 Poets,” edited by Ron Silliman in 1973 (Alcheringa, 1975)
PARIS REVIEW “Language Sampler,” edited by Charles Bernstein (The Paris Review, 1982)
TREE In the American Tree: Language, Poetry, Realism, edited by Ron Silliman (National Poetry Foundation, 1986)
ND Language Poetries, edited by Douglas Messerli (New Directions, 1987)

Bruce Andrews, Ray DiPalma, and Barrett Watten are the only poets published in all four anthologies.

Charles Bernstein, Clark Coolidge*, Tina Darragh, Alan Davies, Ted Greenwald*, Robert Grenier, Carla Harryman, Lyn Hejinian, Susan Howe*, P. Inman, Bob Perelman, Peter Seaton, James Sherry, Ron Silliman, and Hannah Weiner* were published in three of the anthologies.

In two collections are Rae Armantrout, Alan Bernheimer, Lynne Dreyer, Michael Gottlieb, Jackson Mac Low*, David Melnick, and Michael Palmer*.

With one appearance are Barbara Barracks, Arakawa and Madeline Gins*, Tom Beckett, Steve Benson, David Bromige, Lee DeJasu, Michael Davidson, Jean Day, Fanny Howe*, Erica Hunt, Ken Irby*, Douglas Messerli, Tom Mandel, John Mason, Bernadette Mayer, Nick Piombino, Larry Price, Kit Robinson, and Stephen Rodefer.

Although not without a distinct usefulness in mapping the landscape of Language Writing, this graph requires a few caveats. Several poets mentioned are from the preceding generation (those marked with *) and are best seen as precursors of Language Writing. (With only a couple of exceptions, the core group associated with Language Writing were born between 1945 and 1950). Some, including Barbara Barracks and Lee Dejasu, disappeared from the poetry scene early on, while others, such as, Steve McCaffery, Leslie Scalapino, and Ted Pearson, though not included in the anthologies, are significant participants in the Language Writing configuration and well represented in the collection.
