I don't know where the "60 books of poetry" that Creeley was supposed to have published are. It makes this master of the minimal seem almost insanely prolific. I think there are really about 12-15, not counting the selecteds and collecteds and recompilations, limited editions, and chapbooks, the same poems arranged in different configurations. The prose also adds to the total, of course. I'm sure there are sixty separate titles, everything taken together, for a poet whose essential legacy is 100 brief poems.
