MTC Cronin MORE OR LESS THAN 1-100 (Shearsman, 2004) | 10-Dec-04

Poems 1-13 and 88-100 from this one-hundred poem sequence have already appeared in Shearsman magazine, issue 54, but the full scope of the piece will only become clear with publication of the complete book: one hundred poems, where poem 1 has 1 line, poem 2 has 2 lines, all the way to poem 50 with fifty lines, 51 with 49 lines and back down to 100 which is a one-liner again. Like many forms, self-imposed or otherwise, Ms Cronin uses this apparently restrictive structure to support a wonderfully original unfolding of verse.
