A critical retrospective of Creeley's work from 1952 to 1982
Since the publication in 1952 or Le Fou, Robert Creeley has been the subject of continuing critical review. He has been called a traditionalist by some. Yet he was influenced by the poetry of William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg, by the abstract expressionism of Jackson Pollock, and by the jazz of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk.
This collection gathers the best of that criticism in a retrospective of Creeley's work from 1952 to 1982, and includes reflections by William Carlos Williams, Louis Zukofsky, Cid Corman, Robert Bly, Kenneth Rexroth, and Robert Hass.
