These wide-ranging talks, essays, and interviews-beginning with "Why Don't Women Do Language–Oriented Writing?" and including "Feminist Poetics and the Meaning of Clarity," "Poetic Silence," and "Cosmology and Me"—are essential documents for understanding not only Rae Armantrout's poetry and poetics but her contribution to the development of language poetry in particular and contemporary poetry in general.

Like her poetry, Armantrout's prose is marked by concision, a refreshing absence of jargon, and a quizzical mind that never rests easy. Collected Prose also features True, Armantrout's illuminating autobiography, which details her early years in San Diego and Berkeley.
