How much did making it new have to do with making it? For the four outsider poets considered here, the connection was everything. Both a social history of literary ambition in America in the 1950s and 1960s and a collective literary biography, this is an account of postwar poetry underground.

From the Publisher:

Rifkin's study of four major post-war American poets (Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Louis Zukofsky, and Ted Berrigan) addresses an increasingly timely literary question: how do writers craft their careers and how does our literary canon get defined? The result is a collective group portrait that reveals how American literature found its distinctive voice after the war, and how the business of writing has become an increasingly sophisticated career choice.

About the Author:

Libbie Rifkin is assistant professor in the Department of English at the University of Alabama.
