Poetry. Edited by Lee Ann Brown. SONNETS, first published in 1989 as Tender Buttons Number 1 is widely considered to be one of the most generative and innovative works of contemporary American poetry, radically rethinking the traditional sonnet form. This expanded 25th Anniversary edition includes a new preface by Bernadette Mayer, an editor's note by Tender Buttons Press publisher Lee Ann Brown, and a selection of previously unpublished archival material including the Skinny Sonnets, described as "Hypnogogic Word Playing in Reporters' Notebooks" which further expand our map of Bernadette Mayer's ground-breaking works of writing consciousness.
Bernadette Mayer was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1945. A prolific poet, her first book was published when she was twenty–three years old. Now, many texts later, she continues to write progressive poetry from her home in East Nassau, New York.Author City: EAST NASSAU, NY USA
