Overview
Poetry. THE GREAT DIMESTORE CENTENNIAL is a guide book to the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, seven long solos in a jam session with the dead, an answer to the four great philosophic questions of Immanuel Kant, the song of a barbaric horde, an eavesdropping at the borders of contempory history, an account of an apocalyptic disco...And the presiding beings are Beethoven, Napoleon, Sousa, Frank Woolworth, Buddy Bolden, Charlie Parker, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. "This powerful act of language is at once a celebration and a moan of display. Its theme is the advent of the 'Information Society,' and its roots are in both the Western Intellectual traditions and American forms of life"--Charles Stein.
