About the Author:

Michael McClure is an American poet, playwright, songwriter, and novelist. He has collaborated with prominent artists, poets, and musicians, including Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, and Terry Riley. McClure's journalism has been featured in "Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The Los Angeles Times, " and "The San Francisco Chronicle, "and he has received numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and an Obie Award. His books of poetry include "Mysteriosos and Other Poems, Huge Dreams, " and "Rain Mirror." Leslie Scalapino (1944 2010) taught at Mills College in Oakland and at Bard College in New York State. Among her many books are "It's go in horizontal: Selected Poems, 1974 2006" (UC Press); "Day Ocean State of Star's Night: Poems and Writings, 1989 and 1999 2006, "and "Floats Horse-Floats or Horse-Flows."

From Publishers Weekly:

This small personal sampler of 25 years of McClure's work has an earnest and programmatic quality to it. An ecological romantic with Marxist tendencies, McClure juxtaposes the evil of politics with the virtue of what he calls "biology," a kind of ideal, Lawrentian natural order. Strident and morally didactic, many of his poems read like political or religious chants. As he states it, the poem has value more "as an extension of myself, as a gesture," than as a text per sea theory that leads inexorably to self-indulgence and excess. McClure is enamored of splashy upper-case interjections and multiple exclamation points, but the effect is somewhat quaint and endearing. He writes of one of his own poems: "It is comprised, as our cells are, of Pleistocene hunts and toy umbrellas." Cute, yes, but quintessential McClure.
