Rime Rhymes With Expensive

When I heard the news that The Arion Press had released Robert Duncan's The Structure of Rime, which collects a series of prose poems on prosody written by Duncan over the course of his life and never previously collected, I was excited. Then, I found the price-tag: $1,350.

The work is rare. But, although the book includes an introduction by Michael Palmer and prints by Frank Lobdell, Ducan himself couldn't afford this collection! In fact, I can't think of any poet who can afford such an edition.
