*Clark Coolidge and Bernadette Mayer. The Cave. 2009. 69 pp.

This is a collaboration begun in 1972 and concluded in 1978, brought out by Adventures in poetry this year with a prologue by Marcella Durand. There are dialogues between "Beckett" and "Collins," "Hawthorne" and "Melville," longer prose pieces. I've looked through this quickly but will have to study it at length.

I learned a new word from this book: "phreatic."
