A Little History

Alcalay, Ammiel

Los Angeles: re: public/UpSet Press, 2013.

First Edition, First Printing. Paperback. 315 pp., small 8vo. Sewn signatures glued into photo-illustrated wrappers. With notes, list of works consulted, and index. Edited with a preface by Fred Dewey. A stunning book of essays; in the words of the editor: "A Little History is a rich work of discovery, recovery, and response whose purpose is to dig, to find, and to preserve. The lectures that provided a beginning for the heart of the book -- investigating international politics through the lens formed by the work and choices of Gloucester poet and thinker Charles Olson -- were delivered at Cornell in 2002 and at Poet's House in New York City in 2004. While the consequence of these talks, delivered by poet, translator, critic, and scholar Ammiel Alcalay, has percolated out -- through public events, a web site, and Alcalay's crucial Lost & Found chapbook series at CUNY's Graduate Center, recovering lost works -- the original thinking has existed, until now, only in clandestine form."
