The Straight Line: Writing on Poetry and Poets

Ron Padgett, Author, Ronald Padgett, Author University of Michigan Press $15.95 (184p) ISBN 978-0-472-06726-8
Ron Padgett didn't know Blaise Cendrars or Vladimir Mayakovsky, but he did know Ted Berrigan and writes about them all, and many others, in The Straight Line: Writings on Poetry and Poets. Padgett (Selected Poems; Albanian Diary; etc.) joins the more than 50 others poets of the Poets on Poetry Series, founded by Donald Hall and edited by David Lehman. Among many short, miscellaneous pieces, New York School aficionados will savor in particular Padgett's long appreciation of Edwin Denby's work and life. ( May)
