Scope and Contents

Bob Grumman wrote the introduction in which he comments on the form of Kempton's poems whereby a word is split into two or more words by intervening spaces. He mentions that G. Huth designated this form as a severlation. These poems are printed one to a page, e.g., artifact = art if act, justice = just ice, herring = her ring, netherlands = net her lands, etc. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
