ISBN: 0876853882
Santa Barbara, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1978. First Softcover Edition. Softcover. A volume of essays & interviews by Ekbert Faas, the distinguished & prolific German-born academic, critical biographer & historical novelist. Faas chose six of the most innovative, influential American poets of the later 20th century for this study: Robert Bly, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, Allen Ginsberg, Charles Olson & Gary Snyder. Among the foremost inventor-practitioners of the Beat Generation, the Black Mountain School & Beyond, these poets are the subjects of Faas's critical essays & (with the exception of then already-deceased Olson) contemporary interviews. This is the first trade-format softcover edition, an exemplary production by the venerable Black Sparrow Press. An essential scholarly-critical work full of deep insight into six of the most important American poets, several of whom are still with us & whose works resonate more than ever. In fine condition with only very light rubbing to front, back covers & spine; very light wear & a few tiny bumps, faint creases at edges & corners of same; moderate sunning at spine & spine-edges of covers; miniscule amount of rubbing & scratching at edges of text block. Interior very fine with only slight curling at lower edges of a few page leaves. Fine. [Item #3459]
