Mark Wallace's "L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poetry bashing" gets at the heart of issues needling poets who don't like to be thrown into one large critical filing cabinet called "Language Poets." Will L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E have the same effect on the "best minds of my generation" as T. S. Eliot's "The Wasteland?" A must-read for every poet. Unforgettable bits: Gerald Burns' "Any phone book is a poem," Chris Stroffolino's "on the scent of logopoeia," Sheila Murphy's "The headpipe's motor nasty," and Elizabeth Burns' "perspectives are tilted, changed."--Susan Smith Nash
