About the Author

John Cage (1912 - 1992) was one of the seminal figures of the avant-garde in the U.S. A composer for whom the whole world -- with its brimming silences and anarchic harmonies -- was a source of music, Cage studied music with Adolph Weiss, Arnold Schoenberg, and others, later collaborating with such artists as Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Cage was the author of many books, including Silence, X, A Year from Monday, M, and Empty Words. The latter are all in print with Wesleyan, along with Joan Retallack's interviews with Cage, MUSICAGE: Cage Muses on Words, Art, Music and a paperback edition of Cage's Norton lectures at Harvard, I-VI.

Reviews

"The poems . . . create space for rethinking what anarchy and, more immediately, sovereignty can mean in a fully globalized 21st century . . . Cage's methods, intentions and good will are impeccably rendered on a platform that is at once fiercely inventive and deeply concerned for the collective human freedom within its own governance . . . [this book] brilliantly highlights the political commitments of his work as a whole."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a singularly important addition to Cage's writings . . . [it] is of vital, historical importance."--Stephen McCaffery, author of The Cheat of Words
