Overview

Bernadette Mayer's revolutionary first books are long out of print, available in the caches of the secondary market at high costs, by loan orviasingle-pagefacsimiles online at Eclipse. While these early books have played an oceanic role in the formation of generations of poets, they are difficult to secure, meaning that opportunities to read, let along examine comprehensively, these books prove challenging at best, largely reducing their operative life to rumor and/or partial engagement, such as may be derived from New Directions' Bernadette Mayer Reader.This has left a woeful gap in the continuum of American experimental poetry, which Station Hill bridges with the publication of Eating the Colors of a Lineup of Words: The First Books of Bernadette Mayer. This multi-book collection includes CEREMONY LATIN; RED BOOK IN THREE PARTS; STORY; MOVING; POETRY; ERUDITIO EX MEMORIA; and THE GOLDEN BOOK OF WORDS. (Studying Hunger Journals, also from this period, was published in 2011 by Station Hill; Memory is forthcoming with Black Widow Press.)
