Frame Structures PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Frame Structures free pdf Gathered here are versions of Hinge Picture (1974), Chanting at the Crystal Sea 91975), Cabbage Gardens (1979), and Secret History of the Dividing Line (1978) that differ in some respects from their original small-press editions. In a long preface, "Frame Structures," written especially for this volume, Howe suggests the autobiographical, familial, literary, and historical motifs that suffuse these early works. Taken together, the preface and poems reflect her rediscovered sense of her own beginnings as a poet, her movement from the visual arts into the iconography of the written word.
