Poetry. The critical measure for visual poetry is, simply, the visual enhancement of language. With his latest book ROUNDELAYS, Richard Kostelanetz takes single English words and then animates them on each page—for over 100 pages—ideally realizing visual- verbal after-images that excite creativity and stick in readers' minds.
Individual entries on Richard Kostelanetz's work in several fields appear in various editions of Readers Guide to Twentieth-Century Writers, Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature, Contemporary Poets, Contemporary Novelists, Postmodern Fiction, Webster's Dictionary of American Writers, The HarperCollins Reader's Encyclopedia of American Literature, Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians, Directory of American Scholars, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in American Art, NNDB.com, Wikipedia.com, and Britannica.com, among other distinguished directories. Otherwise, he survives in New York, where he was born, unemployed and thus overworked.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
