Description


Part of our revived "Poetry Pamphlet" series, Two American Scenes features two masters of the essay discussing "found material."

Excerpts:

It was given to me, in the nineteenth century,
to spend a lifetime on this earth. Along with a few of the sorrows
that are appointed unto men, I have had innumerable enjoyments;
and the world has been to me, even from childhood, a great museum.

-- Lydia Davis

Bad rapids. Bradley is knocked over the side; his foot catches
under the seat and he is dragged, head under water. Camped on
a sand beach, the wind blows a hurricane. Sand piles over us like
a snow-drift.

-- Eliot Weinberge
