In two massive volumes, Steve McCaffery, Canada's most challenging, experimental and innovative poet/critic amasses the best of his previously published and ungathered work.From the early concrete and visual poems of "Broken Mandala" and "Transitions to the Beast" to the Ludwig Wittgenstein-inspired philosophical investigations of "EVOBA, " from the innovative novel "Panopticon" to the Governor General's Award-nominated "Theory of Sediment" and the recent "The Cheat of Words, " this comprehensive edition covers all phases of McCaffery's vast and heterogeneous poetic oeuvre. Many works that have previously only been available in small, privately circulated editions, such as "Shifters" and "Every Way Oakly, " are available in perfect-bound form here for the first time.Volume 2, following in the wake of the extraordinarily successful first volume, collects the best of McCaffery's ungathered work. Along with selections from his concrete and visual poetry, this book contains sound poem and performance scores, excerpts from early chapbooks, 'pataphysical essays and sections of the often-discussed but rarely seen text "The Abstract Ruin." For new readers and long-time fans of McCaffery alike, Volume 2 of "Seven Pages Missing" is essential reading.
