Description

Written during the Vietnam war, Soldier is perhaps the best-known work by the Concrete poet and editor Emmett Williams (1925-2007). The poem consists of the word “soldier” printed continuously in a column down the right-hand page, with the word “die” inside the word “soldier” gaining one line per page, printed in red. The book was originally published in 1973 by Hansjörg Mayer and Something Else Press.

Perfect-bound, softcover, colour.
