Twenty-Four Sonnets (1971)

Mimeo'd in an edition of 250 copies with offset covers by Philip Whalen, Twenty-Four Sonnets is Alice Notley's first book of poems. Like with Notley's Chicago to Ted Berrigan's C: A Journal of Poetry, there are parallels here with Berrigan's first book of poems The Sonnets, which was self-published by C Press in 1964. To get a sense of what these cross-currents are, get a copy of Mimeo Mimeo #5 and read Stephanie Anderson's essay on Alice Notley's Chicago.
