Robert Kelly Collaborations
Robert Kelly's collaborations with visual artists and writers have, over the years, resulted in a number unusual works, of which these three form the central core. We co-published all three in special limited (and signed) editions for North America in cooperation with the original Austrian, German and Italian publishers. This set features Unquell the Dawn Now (Kelly's homeophonic reworking of Holderlin's Am Quell der Donau, followed by four additional workings by the German poet-provocateur Schuldt), Scham/Shame (a dance of English/German prose exchanges with Birgit Kempker — all fully translated for the non-German reading reader), and The Garden of Distances (an interchange of poems drawings by Bridgit Mahlknecht). Only 50 sets are available.
