A hefty volume devoted this issue to Language. Essays concerning what comes after Language Poetry, "Language in Death Notices" by Jon Forrest Glade, language as discussion, language in politics, etc etc. Charlie Mehrhoff in a poem excerpted on the title page strikes a common cord with William S. Burroughs when he says "that which we know as language is an entity,/ a separate and distinct spirit that has entered the ape,/ ...light years from the mist which rises from the elk's mouth." The poetry for the most part is quite good, illuminating. Also included are poems, drawings, reactions to a Ginsberg performance in Idaho, and a special "New Poetry" section compiled by Bob Harrison. With more substance than most, THE REDNECK REVIEW deserves to be heard/read regularly.--Jake Berry
