The Alphabet

Ron Silliman

Since fragments first appeared in journals and magazines in the 1970s, Silliman's long poem The Alphabet has intrigued and exasperated in equal measure. Presented in its entirety for the first time, this vast work consists of 26 smaller books, one for each letter of the alphabet. Innovative in its language, this brilliant collage of artefacts, moments, episodes and voices captures the dizzying evolution of America's social and cultural consciousness.
