Madison, WI: Quixote Press, . Second Edition. Attractive portfolio of levy's work, which he produced during a one month stint in October, 1968 as the "Free University Poet-in-Residence" at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Two editions of the portfolio were assembled and produced by levy's friends and fellow poets, the first in 1969, and this edition in 1972, both containing a different series of collages and inserts in varying sizes. Together with The Buddhist Third Class Junkmail Oracle, an underground newspaper he produced, the Madison Poems and collages remains one of the best representations of his prowess as a visual artist.
