Visual Literature Criticism: A New Collection by Richard Kostelanetz

Although excellent anthologies of visual literature have been available to English readers for more than a decade, there has not been a supportive body of visual literature criticism in the English lan­guage. Books have appeared in the Euro­pean languages, but have never been translated.

Richard Kostelanetz has assembled the first collection of critical essays in English that assesses the expanding range of creative activity encompassed by visual literature. Each of the essays is original with this volume. The con­tributors are John M. Bennett, Geoffrey Cook, Charles Doria, Loris Essary, Ray­mond Federman, Engen Gomringer, Roland Grass, Dick Higgins, Emma Kafelanos, John Jacob, Jerome Klinko­witz, Aaron Marcus, Peter Mayer, Holly O’Grady, Clive Phillpot, Bern Porter, Jonathan Price, Keith Rahmmings, Stephen Scobie, David W. Seaman, Fred Truck (Bolon Dzacab), Karl Young, Paul Zelevansky, and the editor.
