So here they are:
- Things Come On: An Amnoir by Joe Harrington [the most inspirational book for me]
- A Handmade Museum by Brenda Coultas: for those memoir pieces that need more poetics
- greensward and ours by Cole Swensen: for image as artwork with word-economy, and writing out of document
- The Complete Dark Shadows by Tony Trigilio: documenting my experience with going back to photos, research, and the combination [he really fuses these things in wonderful ways]
- Don't Let Me Be Lonely and Citizen (American Lyrics) by Claudia Rankine: another use of photo and news--to show the connections between private and public stories
- Green-Wood by Alison Cobb: poetic non-fiction, document poetics, genius, thorough
I really do have to give a shout-out to Joe. He was the first to ever give me a list of books to consult for my project. Even though I didn't end up using document poetics for my project as much as the list he gave me did, this list-making is something I continue to do.
