The Webs We Weave: Orange County Poetry Anthology 1986

Laguna Beach, CA: Literary Arts Press, 1986. First Printing. Softcover. "The poets represented in this anthology are the first fruits of a new distinctive voice in late 20th century American poetry. Raw energy. Great cultural isolation. An adverse artistic environment. The talents are many. The voice of this poetry resounds." (from co-editor John Brander's introduction) A compendium of mid-1980s contemporary work by poets then residing in Orange County, California. With contributions by Jack Grapes, founder of Bombshelter Press & the On The Bus literary journal (two poems including "Another Sentence"); Gerald Locklin (two poems including "Happy Hour"); Robert Peters (the poignant "On Not Attending My Father's Funeral"); Paul Trachtenberg (two short poems including "Mae West"); Diane Wakoski, who has long since resided in Michigan ("Smudging"), & many other acclaimed, well-known & more obscure poets. A significant, collectible compilation. In very fine condition with only very light rubbing & a few faint creases at front, back covers & spine; tiniest bumps at corners & thin edges of same. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves; otherwise virtually mint. Very Fine. [Item #2901]
