Poetry. Reprint of the 1996 Meow press edition. Standing at the crossroads of New York School immediacy, high linguistic theory, radical Left politics, and Objectivist prosody, Ron Silliman's XING wants to make a deal with your poetic soul.
Ron Silliman has written and edited over 30 books, and has had his poetry and criticism translated into 12 languages. He has worked as a political activist, editor, and market analyst. Among his honors, Silliman was a 2012 Kelly Writers House Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, and the 2010 recipient of the Levinson Prize, from the Poetry Foundation. His sculpture poetry (Bury Neon) is permanently on display in the transit centre of Bury, Lancashire, and he has a plaque in the walk dedicated to poetry in his home town of Berkeley, although he now lives in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
