Bruce Andrews and Charles Bernstein's L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E
The Complete Facsimile
In February 1978, the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E newsletter, founded and edited by Charles Bernstein and Bruce Andrews, established the first public venue for the thriving correspondence of an emerging set of ambitious young poets. It circulated fresh perspectives on writing, politics, and the arts. Instead of poems, it published short essays and book reviews on the model of the private letter. It also featured extensive bibliographies and excerpts of cultural, social, and political theory. Bruce Andrews and Charles Bernstein’s L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E: The Complete Facsimile makes available in print all twelve of the newsletter’s original issues along with three supplementary issues.
