From A Shaman's Notebook: Primitive And Archaic Poetry

Artist: Various

Year: 1968
Country: United States
Catalog No: Broadside Records, BR 652
Format: Vinyl Lp



For many years Jerome Rothenberg, David Antin, Jackson MacLow, and Rochelle Owens, all accomplished and widely published poets themselves, have been collecting and reworking translations of primitive and archaic poetry in a desire to explore new possibilities in language, not only specific verbal techniques, but also varieties of human experience. The translations on this record come from many sources, primarily French and Spanish. Two years ago this program of primitive and archaic poetry was read at the Hardware Poets Playhouse and the Metro Coffeehouse in New York City, and Jerome Rothenberg is currently compiling a large selection of primitive poetry for Doubleday Publishers, including many of the poems on this record.
