Creeley Obit

I would have replied to nate's post but for some reason the blog won't let me. I want to register a furious complaint against the NYT for printing Creely's poem without line breaks and in italics. It's hard to imagine a more careless treatment of a lifetime of work. He's a poet, as you can tell by the poem that nate lovingly copied, in which line breaks and stanza breaks are extremely expressive. Nice work obit writers. Keep 'em coming.

exactly the reason I retyped it in my post.

What Creeley collection would you recommend? I want to drive the Pope off the top of the bestseller list.

University of California Press put out a pretty nice Selected Poems.

Collected Poems of Robert Creeley 1945-1975 (also UC press) is nice--paperback is not too expensive and provides all the Creely one can handle (at least for a week or so....)
