A Brief Intermission

As we continue through Robert Creeley's greatest hits and onward through his little known masterpieces, here for your enjoyment is a collection of short pieces by Louis Zukofsky. Some Time was published by Jonathan Williams's Jargon Society from Stuttgart in 1956 as Jargon 15. Bound in the Japanese style in a trade edition of 300 copies, there were a further 50 copies issued in a slipcase and signed by the author. By all accounts, this book is one of the highpoints of Jargon Society and shows Williams's fine sense of book design.

Pennsound has a reading by Zukofsky from 1954 and another from 1958 demonstrating Zukofsky in performance at the period in which Some Time was issued.
