On the Level Everyday brings together key examples of his classroom lectures...

Overview

Ted Berrigan (1934-1983) is among his generation's most admired writers. In many respects, the directions followed in contemporary poetry were set out in the courses and workshops he taught at the Naropa Institute, the University of Michigan, Yale University, the City University of New York, the Stevens Institute of Technology, the University of Essex in England, Northeastern Illinois University, the Iowa Writers Workshop, and elsewhere. On the Level Everyday brings together key examples of his classroom lectures with other pieces, including two important talks delivered at the Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church in New York. On the Level Everyday provides an introduction not only to Berrigan's poetics but also the problems of surviving as a poet in America today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The late poet Berrigan (1934-83) never wrote down his craft lectures, but they were recorded and transcribed and are presented here by poet Lewis, whose House Rent Boogie (Yellow Pr., 1992) won the Ted Berrigan Award. These six pieces certainly suggest how energetic Berrigan's speech was. Conceptually, though, they are far too foggy for anyone other than Berrigan's staunchest fans. For example, Berrigan says (referring to an exotic form of execution he mentions in one of his poems): "The Persians thought it up, or if it wasn't the Persians it was somebody who didn't like the Persians, but it was one or the other," a sentence an editor would have blue-penciled had these talks been written out as essays. Recommended for readers with a keen interest in Berrigan and also poet-singer Jim Carroll, whose dialog with Berrigan about songwriting is the only piece specific enough to transcend the tone of vague, well-meant enthusiasm.David Kirby, Florida State Univ., Tallahassee
