Reviews

A great modernist finally gets a full tribute with the publication of Lorine Niedecker: Collected Works. A lifetime resident of Wisconsin, Niedecker (1903-1970) was a sort of satellite member of Zukofsky's Objectivist circle, though currents of surrealism, folk poetry and haiku run through her work. Edited by Capilano College English professor Jenny Penberthy (Lorine Niedecker: Woman and Poet), this comprehensive collection of all of Niedecker's surviving verse includes her well-known New Goose folk poems, as well as early poetry that Niedecker had omitted from the collected works published in her lifetime. It is an indispensable book for anyone interested in modernist writing: "What a scandal Christmas What a scandle Christmas is, a red stick-up to a lily." (Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

"This Collected Works should succeed, at long last, in establishing Niedecker as one of the most important and original poets of this past century and in bringing her work into the mainstream, where it belongs." * London Review of Books *
"[Penberthy's] extraordinary efforts to bring to light Niedecker's importance are utterly invaluable." * Boston Review *
"Numerous contemporary avant-garde poets cite the influence of the Objectivists, and yet they remain under-studied and under-appreciated. This collection should help to rectify the oversight by making one of the movement's key players more accessible." * Rain Taxi Review Of Books *
"[A] marvelous edition" * The Guardian *
"Having all of Niedecker in one place, as it has never been collected before, is a great moment." * Philadelphia Inquirer *
"...this comprehensive collection of all of Niedecker's surviving verse includes her well-known New Goose folk poems, as well as early poetry that Niedecker had omitted from the collected works published in her lifetime. It is an indispensable book for anyone interested in modernist writing." * Publishers Weekly *
"Rarely does a single volume of poetry radically change the prevailing view of its author. Lorine Niedecker: Collected Works, superbly edited by Jenny Penberthy, is such a book. It is, at last, the long-awaited necessity: an accurate, reliable, full text of this important modernist writer's oeuvre. Its value is not to be underestimated." * Jacket2 *
"Niedecker's poems, too long neglected, are sensual, witty, and true." * East Bay Express *
"Jenny Penberthy's lucid, intelligent arrangement of Niedecker's work . . . and her consistent care in establishing the texts of poems make it possible to see clearly for the first time the development of Niedecker's poetry. . . .Jenny Penberthy has done poetry a great service." * World Literature Today *
"This is an excellent, and for this reader, an essential publication." * Oyster Boy Review *
