Item description for Progress/Under Erasure (Green Integer) by Barrett Watten...
This volume brings together two collections of poetry, the previously published Progress (published to critical acclaim in 1985) and Under Erasure, a new work by one of the major figures of the San Francisco "Language" poetry scene of the 1970s and 1980s. "Progress in writing politics," wrote Andrew Ross of the first work. Robert Creeley noted of Watten: "He has done what I had begun to think impossible...made articulate and accessible the decisive activity of our present writing.
