Magnificent... a great poem really rolling in all its power and splendor of language.

—James Laughlin

The new, authoritative edition of "A": the monumental lifepoem by one of the most important American poets of the twentieth century, Louis Zukofsky.


‘‘A’’

Poetry by Louis Zukofsky

At long last, here is the whole of Louis Zukofsky’s epic masterpiece "A" back in print with misprints corrected and a new, fresh introduction by the noted scholar Barry Ahearn. No other poem in the English language is filled with as much daily love, light, intellect, and music. As William Carlos Williams once wrote of Zukofsky’s poetry, "I hear a new music of verse stretching out into the future."
