Poet and editor Michael Gizzi, known equally well for his own verbally inventive work and for publishing the work of other innovative poets (he used to edit Hard Press and lingo magazine), has died. He got his start studying at Brown with National Book Award winning poet and editor Keith Waldrop, whose Burning Deck Press published Gizzi's most recent collection, New Depths of Deadpan. The first ("Michael") link has many further links to Google Books versions of Gizzi's collections (as usual semi-blocked, but you can flip through them to get a sense of the career).

I saw this yesterday, and didn't have time to put together a good post. I'm glad someone else did.

Also, definitely check out the huge collection of recorded readings, cleverly hiding under the word "verbally."
