KIRKUS REVIEW

Poet and editor (America a Prophecy and the ethnopoetic magazine Alcheringa) Rothenberg recovers two generations of avant-garde poets, many ""neglected"" or ""nearly forgotten"" because (he says) of the intervening influence of the New Critics (""the only literary movement to begin in a frat house"" -- Rexroth). Column A includes Arensberg, H.D., Duchamp, Eliot, Mina Loy, Pound, Stein; column B, Harry Crosby, Jolas, Mac Low, Olson, Patchen, Laura Riding, Zukofsky. Stimulating.
