The new, authoritative edition of “A”: the monumental lifepoem by one of the most important American poets of the twentieth century, Louis Zukofsky.      River that must turn full after I stop dying      Song, my song, raise grief to music      Light as my loves’ thought, the few sick      So sick of wrangling: thus weeping,      Sounds of light, stay in her keeping      And my son’s face – this much for honor            ? from “ ‘A’-11” At long last, here is the whole of Louis Zukofsky’s epic masterpiece “A” back in print with misprints corrected and a new, fresh introduction by the noted scholar Barry Ahearn. No other poem in the English language is filled with as much daily love, light, intellect, and music. As William Carlos Williams once wrote of Zukofsky’s poetry, “I hear a new music of verse stretching out into the future.”
