The Last of the Niedecker

Please read the rest of Lorine's poetry, and the essays in Radical Vernacular titled "Darkinfested" by Rae Armantrout (pg. 91) "Niedecker, Morris, and the Art of Work" by Elizabeth Willis (pg. 223) and "Take Oil/and Hum: Niedecker and Bunting" by Peter Quartermain (pg. 271).

If anyone would enjoy a study/work night, please let me (Katherine) know, I love to hear Niedecker read aloud. Good luck with your papers/projects!
