When Publishers Stalked The Earth


When Publishers Stalked The Earth

Instead of just publishing another volume of poetry, the author decides to tell the stories of the illustrious publishing personalties he met with and tell how they affected his literary life. In between the stories and descriptions of these publishers are assorted poems by the author which found their way into the publications these editors oversaw. It is more the story of a movement than a poetry book, although the author hopes that the poems themselves give a hint of the flavor of the works that were being published at that time. While a certain amount of academic and formal poetry was to be found, the most notable work of that time was brazen confessional poetry of the sort which would be frowned up in this age of word police, thought police and neo-puritanism.
