Poetry. A menagerie of the quotidian in jazzéd lines, THE CIRCUS comprises a sequence of poems written in late 2002 in Petaluma, California.
Author of more than twenty books of poetry, Clark Coolidge has occupied a singular place in American letters since the mid-1960s. An unparalleled influence on the wider avant- garde—the Language Poets, the second and third generation New York School, and whole movements of visual artists, musicians, and linguists, Coolidge is from Providence, Rhode Island. Since 1997 he has lived in Petaluma, California.Author City: Petaluma, CA USA
