John M. Bennett, Visual Poet

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera

When I first encountered Bennett's work, I thought him not a visual poet, for I thought he merely enhanced his poems visually. Be that as it may, he is now unquestionably a major visual poet--and one, I'm pleased to see, continues to keep his texts as semantically important to his aesthetic aim as his illumagery.

Ed.: Oh, and what is "illumagery"? It's Grummanese for visual art.
