For nearly four decades, Robert Creeley has been a popular and often controversial force in American poetry and letters. His essays, written from the 1950s to the 1980s and collected here for the first time, show a poet deeply touched by and in touch with the concerns of his post-war generation. His spare prose illuminates many important literary and artistic figures—Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Louis Zukofsky, Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Allen Ginsberg, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, John Chamberlain, and others—capturing the essence of their distinctively American achievements.

"He is a master, one of the handful at work in America in any art."—Robert Hass
"Creeley's expository prose, like his poetry, is exploratory, elliptical, condensed and compacted, reflecting as much his critical intelligence as the movements of his mind."—Michael Davidson
