Scope and Contents

In his introduction to this print series Nannucci writes that "The growing importance of the visual over the verbal which started developing during the fifties, has doubtlessly influenced the proliferation of experimental poetry all over the world...This collection of unpublished poems is both a survey of the field made up to the end of the year 1970 and a proposal for the continuation of experimental work in poetry and for th e qualitative renewal of its original aspects." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
