description

"The cover of this issue was designed by Andy Warhol from photographs of poets Edwin Denby and Gerard Manlanga." -- from colophon page. This project is Warhol's first screenprint utilizing Polaroid photographs. Documented within Reva Wolf, Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960s (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1997), pp. 14 - 33. "This issue [of "C: A Journal of Poetry"] was conceived with the idea in mind of making a small collection of poetry of Edwin Denby available to myself and anyone else who might be interested. My own feelings about Edwin's poetry are perhaps indicated by this issue of 'C.' I have presumptuously included my own poem dedicated to John Weiners at the beginning of the magazine, both as homage to Edwin (and John) and to express my feelings about Edwin as a Man." -- Ted Berrigan, from "Some Notes," the afterward in this issue. Front and back covers screenprinted by Andy Warhol. Texts by Edwin Denby, Frank O'Hara, John Wieners, Ted Berrigan.
