Journal / Book Title
Armand Schwemer was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1927 and came to the United States in 1936. He has worked as a performance artist and musician with Jackson MacLow, Jerome Rothenberg, Gum Velez and others, and has published over fifteen books of poetry. His The Tablets, an ongoing work begun in the 1960s, remains one of the most protean and provocative, though underacknowledged, explorations of open composition to have emerged since mid-century. The following interview, conducted by Willard Gingerich, is excerpted from a longer series of exchanges which took place between April 4 and June 29, 1993.
Part 1 of a 2-part interview. Part 2 is published in The American Poetry Review; Philadelphia Vol. 24, Iss. 5, (Sep 1995): 27.
