I remember when I checking this book out at the library I worked at several times until I found a copy in the storage room for the Friend s Bookstore and bought it for like 50 cents since the man who organized everything called me his best customer This is an important anthology as it documents several different voices within several different schools that were evolving from Modernist tradition I skipped most of the Beat material as I euivocate a lot of their sensibilities with my teenage poetics and hate voices that reflect a post hippiedruggienew age subculture at this point in my life not to say that their work doesn t have any merit but there are way interesting poems in this anthology than Mexico City Blues choruses and buddha talk I was taken aback by Edward Marshall s Leave The Word Alone Lew Welsh s Chicago Poem and Paul Carroll s Father all displaying a genuine and lyrical capacity than any of the Beat amphetamine sputter The statements on poetics are just as insightful including Olson s Projective Verse essay Olson particularly feels like the spearhead of the writers in this book not just Black Mountain colleagues though this may not be true for all writers included As a poet there were several times during my reading sessions of this book where I had to put the book down after being moved by a poem or hearing the rhythms of what I was reading in my thought patterns and I had to write something poem or not I recommend this to any poet and anyone interested in the history of poetry A lot of poems in here you won t find online and a good way to familiarize yourself with writers that don t get as much recognition as they deserve especially in an era where Instapoetry is the dominantly recognized mode

Allen The New American Poetry 1945 1960 Read & download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free With than 100000 copies sold The New American Poetry has become one of the most influential anthologies published in the United States since World War II As one of the first counter cultural collections of American verse this volume fits in Ro. For me this is where my reading writing of poetry began It s not just the poets represented here Olson Blackburn Creeley Duncan Spicer etc but the poems selected which frankly seems to be a lost art There have been numerous anthologies published since some with even impressive lineups but they lack the selectivity of works that this anthology epitomized The poems selected for Olson really highlight what was revolutionary in his thought The Kingfishers The Lordly Isolate Satyrs The Distances All three great poems all three truly projective and all three poems so compelling that I still re read them to this day The Duncan selection includes Poem Beginning With A Line by Pindar which is easily one of his best brightest Dorn s The Hide of My Mother presages his most sarcastic works but with an inner view which his late works avoid Could have done better with Levertov Blaser but a stunning selection of Lamantia poems leading off with Terror Conduction which makes the hair stand on end 12 choruses from Kerouac s fabulous Mexico City Blues Parts 1 II of Howl Sunflower Sutra Corso s Marraige all exemplary works from what was to become the beat canon The NY School could have been illuminating but Koch s Thank You rocks and O Hara s whole selection is utterly mind blowing These are still my favorite O Hara poems Ashbery s Instruction Manual is still used in workshops because it is so perfect and How Long Will I Be Able To Inhabit the Divine Sepulchre is one of the flarfiest Ashbery poems I know of Nice Whalen selections and Snyder s Riprap sort of round out that scene The John Weiners poems are so intense burning that I remember not being able to forget them still Then closing out with some essays like Olson s Projective Verse and the like this book was absolutely crucial for me many others I constituted my first reading lists from this book I don t think I could possibly recommend it enough Does it have shortcomings You bet Very few women it s missing Ted Berrigan who wasn t publishing much at the time but came to be so much a part of this mileu maybe not enough Barbara Guest but even so a masterpiece
