The book transcribes the tape, so we don't see Ammons's original monospace typewriter font, and we can only imagine the edges of the paper reel on both sides of the irregularly formatted text. Here is a typical passage. Note to readers: Goodreads' interface collapses the left-margin spacing, which I preserved when I transcribed this passage. Ammons poem, Tape for the Turn of the Year, is an extended exercise in ars poetica. Through the use of images and form, Ammons builds a case that the hunger to create is channeled from a bodily need and that to indulge in creation is to grasp at the void.

In the form of a journal covering the period December 6, 1963, through January 10, 1964, A. Ammons’s long, thin poem was written on a roll of adding-machine tape, then transferred foot by foot to manuscript. He chose this method as a serious experiment in making a poem adapt to something outside itself. The tape determined both the length of the poem’s lines and when it ends. Tape for the Turn of the Year is a poem of infinite variety, blessed by the rich resources of one of this century’s greatest poets.

His Tape for the Turn of the Year (1965) was composed on a skinny roll of adding-machine tape, which he threaded through his typewriter, a ribbon of speech. He twice won the National Book Award - in 1973 for Collected Poems, and in 1993 for Garbage - for his work, which tended to make you feel you were sitting beside him as he typed. Here now is The Complete Poems of A. Ammons in two slab-like volumes. It’s a rocking double-wide mobile home of electric American verse. The cube-like density of these books is imposing until you open.

Ammons was poet in residence when I was an undergraduate; lost my original copy. Glad to have a replacement.

This book length poem was written with several things in mind. First, the title is literal. Ammons wanted to write a poem confined in length and width by composing the entire poem on a roll of adding machine tape, and the result was a diary of the last part of one year and the beginning of another.
Ammons seems to be at very ease with the notion of composing poetry, bringing forth an informal voice, probably a necessary step for such a long poem with such a purpose, and draws in the reader with a confidence that is refreshing. he breaks down the structure of the poem and uses deceptively simple, and straight forward language to mark the passing of time. Broken by days, Ammon expresses the essence of the poet's mind, allowing for the day's mood to dictate not only tone, but length and scope within the writing.
I feel very at home with this poem. I feel like sitting in a rocker with some classical piano music in the background whenever I open this book. I only regret that cannot find time to read this book as often as I would like. Re-released to coincide with Ammon's book, Garbage, Tape for the turn is a wonderful book with quite a few quiet revelations that will keep you thinking all day long.
