Kostelanetz, Richard

▪ American author
in full  Richard Cory Kostelanetz 
born May 14, 1940, New York, N.Y., U.S.

      American writer, artist, critic, and editor of the avant-garde who is productive in many fields.

      Kostelanetz attended Brown University (B.A., 1962), Columbia University (M.A., 1966), and King's College, London. He served as visiting professor or guest artist at a variety of institutions and lectured widely.

      In 1971, employing a radically formalist approach, Kostelanetz produced the novel In the Beginning, which consists of the alphabet, in single- and double-letter combinations, unfolding over 30 pages. Most of his other literary work also challenges the reader in unconventional ways and is often printed in limited editions at small presses. Kostelanetz's nonfiction work The End of Intelligent Writing: Literary Politics in America (1974) charged the New York literary and publishing establishment with inhibiting the publishing and promotion of works by innovative younger authors. His “visual poetry” consists of arrangements of words on a page, using such devices as linking language and sequence, punning, alliteration, parallelism, constructivism, and minimalism.

      Among his other works are Recyclings: A Literary Autobiography (1974, 1984), Politics in the African-American Novel (1991), Published Encomia, 1967–91 (1991), and On Innovative Art(ist)s (1992). His films include A Berlin Lost (1984) and Berlin Sche-Einena Jother (1988), both with Martin Koerber. Kostelanetz issued many recordings and audiocassettes on his own label and edited works on musicians such as B.B. King (King, B.B.) and Philip Glass (Glass, Philip). His A Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes was published in 1999.
