I love myself
In NEVERMIND, Robert Fitterman relaxes the lyrics of Nirvana's iconic album of the same title into a slow poetry spread across 700 pages, one that halts grunge's hammering pace into a meditation on the emotional spaces of minimalist and concrete poetry, and the physical space of the book itself.
Robert Fitterman is the author of 15 books of poetry including ROB'S WORD SHOP (Ugly Duckling Press, 2019), THIS WINDOW MAKES ME FEEL (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2018), I LOVE YOU FOREVER, NO MATTER (Counterpath, 2016), NEVERMIND (Wonder Books, 2016), NO WAIT, YEP. DEFINITELY STILL HATE MYSELF (Ugly Duckling Press, 2014), HOLOCAUST MUSEUM (Counterpath, 2013, and Veer [London] 2012), NOW WE ARE FRIENDS (Truck Books, 2010), ROB THE PLAGIARIST (Roof Books, 2009), WAR, THE MUSICAL (Subpress, 2006), and METROPOLIS—a long poem in 4 separate volumes. He has collaborated with several visual artists, including: Serkan Ozkaya, Nayland Blake, Fia Backström, Tim Davis and Klaus Killisch. He is the founding member of the international artists and writers collective, Collective Task. He teaches writing and poetry at New York University and at the Bard College, Milton Avery School of Graduate Studies.
