Edited by a group of six women (hence the magazine's name, it would seem), 6IX is a lively collection of mainly Language-oriented poetry and writing. There are some beautiful texts in this issue by Alice Notley consisting of linked phrases each enclosed in quotation marks, a technique that creates some amazing effects. Also appealing is the poem "The Waiting Room" by Jacqueline Weltman with its ethereal yet earthy eroticism, and an manifesto by Susan Smith Nash entitled "Beyond the Language Movement [reprinted in this issue of TRR] that seems to address the attitudes that underlie this compilation. Includes book reviews.--John M. Bennett
