Sinopsis: Chronologically the first, Collected Shorter Poems, Vol. 1 is editorially the third of John Matthias’s three-volume Shearsman Collected Poems. It includes the poems that first made Matthias’s reputation-experimental work like ’Turns: Toward a Provisional Poetics and a Discipline’; politically activist poems from the 1960s and ’70s such as his elegy for the Kent State University students killed by the Ohio National Guard; poems written from his fifteen years of living off and on in Suffolk; poems articulating an aesthetic of play-and-game like ’Clarifications for Robert Jacoby’; along with several epistolary poems, explorations of place, and family-oriented lyrics, such as the often translated and reprinted ’Poem for Cynouai.’ This volume joins Collected Shorter Poems, Vol. 2 and Collected Longer Poems in bringing together all of the poetry, with the exception of Trigons (available separately from Shearsman), that Matthias wishes to preserve.
