Armand Schwerner was an avant-garde Jewish-American poet. Schwerner’s performances of The Tablets series were well known; according to the New York Times, Schwerner could produce many distinct voices from one breath to the next. He could also use his mastery of rhythm (he was an accomplished clarinetist) to create an audible stir in an audience, which at times made it seem that his poems were speaking from the floor, the balcony and the rafters all at once.

Armand Schwerner (1927-1999) was an avant-garde Jewish-American poet. Schwerner was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and his family moved to the United States when he was nine years old. His most famous work, "Tablets", is a series of poems which claim to be fictional reconstructions of ancient Sumero-Akkadian inscriptions, complete with lacunae and "untranslatable" words. He attended Columbia University (. 1964) and taught at universities in the New York area until his retirement in 1983.

Poetry. THE TABLETS takes its place as a worthy successor of the great American long poems of our century: Pound's Cantos, Williams' Paterson, Olson's Maximus, Zukofsky's A. The first edition, published in 1968, included eight tablets. Over the years, THE TABLETS continued to grow. The present edition is the first to include all twenty-seven tablets that Schwerner had completed at the time of his death, along with the poet's own commentary on the work in the form of Journals/Divagations. This edition also includes a CD of Schwerner reading extensive selections of THE TABLETS. Schwerner's poem mimics the conventions observed in real scholarly editions of ancient cuneiform texts ... THE TABLETS is a Chinese-box puzzle, in place of a primal scene of archeological insight, a game of hide-and-seek, in place of 'knowledge,' uncertainty, speculation, make-believe and trompe l'oeil effects--Brian McHale.

When I first saw many of the works that make up Schwerner's TABLETS sequence in Conjunctions magazine back in the 80s, I was hooked: the compelling and playful invention of mythic stories, invented-archeological mock-transcriptions, and odd iconography seemed quite fascinating, and still does. I was saddened to hear the news last year that Schwerner had died, especially since I had been waiting years for someone to finally collect all of these odd and intriguing sections into a single volume.

In the Tablets, Schwerner is by turns experimental, ironic, satiric, comic, reflexive, and serious. The criptic nature of the Tablets may turn some readers off, but for anyone interested in getting to know American poetry after 1945, the book is a must. Its right up there with "A", "The Cantos", and "Maximus". A faux archeology of consciousness. An altogether beautiful reading experience.
