English Concrete Poetry

A folder of the work of five English poets Kenelm Cox, Tom Edmonds, John Furnival, Dom Sylvester Houdard and Bob Cobbing all of whom have contributed significantly to the world-wide development of concrete poetry.

Here are machine poems from Cox, glass cube astro-poems from Edmonds, Tower of Babel screen poems from Furnival, typestracts from Houdard, and visual texts of sound poetry from Cobbing, who set himself the almost impossible task of selecting the five works by each poet he felt introduced their work best to the first-time reader.
