Abstract

In the February 1969 issue of Word Ways, Howard Bergerson dissected a poem into an alphabetical list of 478 words and invited readers to construct a new poem out of this raw material. One reader -- J. A. Lindon of Weybridge, Surrey, England -- took up the challenge, and in the next issue of Word Ways the original poem and the reconstruction were presented simultaneously.
