About the Author
Patti Smith is a writer, performer, and visual artist. She gained recognition in the 1970s for her revolutionary mergence of poetry and rock and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Her seminal album Horses, bearing Robert Mapplethorpe’s renowned photograph, hasbeen hailed as one of the top one hundred albums of all time. Her books include M Train, Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea, and Auguries of Innocence.
Praise for the Original Edition: “The first great rock’n’roll collection to be published since Dylan’s Lyrics: 1962-1985.”
“Her influence in music today is undeniable. There’s not anybody I know in a band anywhere who does not revere the records she put out. There was a rawness and energy to Horses that I had not heard in any other music. From then on, my life was changed.”
— Michael Stipe, R.E.M.
“Patti Smith is not only a great performer, she is a shaman—that is, someone in touch with other levels of reality.”
— William S. Burroughs
“Collected Lyrics shows [Smith’s] living energy as words…”
— Los Angeles Times
“The shamanic impulse-invocation of spirits, channeling of the voices of dead poets, prayer to unknown forces-pulses through the three hundred pages or so of Smith’s Collected Lyrics, 1970-2015…”
— New York Review of Books
“To see Smith’s galvanizing lyrics on the page, without musical embellishment, is to encounter the essence of her art-the radiant spectrum of her concerns, the razor-edge of her wit, and the depth of her emotions.”
