110 pp., ads; 4to; photo-illustrated white wrappers; design, Richard Zybert. Includes poetry, prose, b&w photographs. Analytic Lyric (?) a term taken form a talk by Michael Palmer at Iowa City, 1986. From the "anxiety of signification . . .problematics of self-expression" (ex. Spicer, Holderlin) and Edmond Jabes, and Paul Celan with "the hope of recovering the meanings of words in a time when words have lost their meanings," to a "critique of the discourse of power", and the struggle to renew the function of poetry as exemplified by the writers and artists in this and other issues of Acts.

"The first issue of Acts, printed in Robert Duncan's Basement in 1982, was intended to show the range of work being done by poets associated with the Poetics Program at New College in San Francisco. Acts (grew) to become one of the most coherent and exciting contexts for contemporary experimentation in the U.S., including translations and photographic/text works."
