Item description for Le Style Apollinaire: The Writing of Guillaume Apollinaire (Wesleyan Centennial Edition of the Complete Critical Writings of Louis Zukofsky) by Louis Zukofsky, Serge Gavronsky, Jean Daive, Sasha Watson, Rene Taupin & Sasha Watson...
The work of Louis Zukofsky has been gaining exposure as a new generation of poets and scholars "rediscover" the American avant-garde tradition. Concurrently, interest in Guillaume Apollinaire's work has grown in recent years as English departments re-explore international modernism. In this extended essay, one of the American literary giants of the 20th Century provides deep readings of the French modernist's entire oeuvre and provides insight into his own formative aesthetic. Two sections of the essay were published in Westminster Magazine in 1932; the complete book is available here for the first time in English. The book builds its arguments with extensive quotations from Apollinaire's poems in their orignal French; this bilingual edition is the latest offering in what Publisher's Weekly has hailed as "an essential series."

More About Louis Zukofsky, Serge Gavronsky, Jean Daive, Sasha Watson, Rene Taupin & Sasha Watson
LOUIS ZUKOFSKY (1904-1978) was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. His early work, including his first published poem, "Poem Beginning 'The'," strived to establish the poem as object by employing syntactic fragmentation and line breaks that disrupt normal speech rhythm. Zukofsky invented the term "objectivist" and is widely considered one of the primary forerunners of contemporary avant-garde writing. His many books include "A," Prepositions, Bottom: on Shakespeare, The Complete Short Poetry, and The Collected Fiction.
