bill bissett uses unusual orthography and incorporates visual elements in his printed poetry, and his performance of "concrete sound" poetry, sound effects, chanting, barefoot dancing and playing a maraca during his poetry readings. Frank Davey described him as "rejecting the conventional or 'straight' world [...] not only in lifestyle but in ruthless alterations to conventional syntax and spelling."[8] Themes inhis work range from the mystical to the mundane, incorporating humour, sentimentality, and political commentary. He often does not capitalise his name or use capital letters in his work or correspondence. His newest book is titled breth: th treez uv lunaria: selektid rare n nu pomes n drawings, 1957–2019, and is published by Talonbooks.
