About this title

Synopsis:

Offers poems written from the 1940s through the 1970s that reveal the development of the author's style

From the Inside Flap:

The subtlest feeling for the measure that I encounter anywhere except in the verses of Ezra Pound.” William Carlos Williams

It is a study, how Creeley lands syntax down the alley, and his vocabulary pure English to hit meters and rhymes all of which are spares and strikes.” Charles Olson

Robert Creeley’s poetry is as basic and necessary as the air we breathe; as hospitable, plain and open as our continent itself.” John Ashbery

Robert Creeley has created a noble body of poetry that extends the work of his predecessors Pound, Williams, Zukofsky, and Olson, and provides like them a method for his successors in exploring our new American poetic consciousness.” Allen Ginsberg

Creeley is a touchstone for me a measure of what poetry is. He is a genius of the sensorium as Kerouac was and a master of the ear as is Miles Davis. He is a carver in space like Van Gogh.” Michael McClure
