Lorine Niedecker got considerably less of what she wanted than a person can reasonably expect out of life. As a tribute to her on her 100th birthday, we have produced print and web facsimiles of her "Paean To Place," set up one stanza per page, as she wished. For further notes, see the commentary below. For the facsimile, click on the button to take you to it, and click on each page to move to the next.
