    Back in '94, a college friend got it for xmas, didn't think much about it. I thumbed around, read Olson, freaked out. Rode my bike to the independent bookstore on the edge of Urbana, spent the day in a park, freaking out. I'd never heard of 99% of these people. What a thrill. Absolutely changed my life--now I'm doomed. Beware. The most wide-ranging anthology of the broadest variety of the strangest American writings I've come across anywhere.

    Really enjoyed! Open my eyes to poetry after the New York Schools. Those Black mountain poets really left a legacy. Made me fall in love with a few poets I've never heard of. Here they are: John Wieners, Dennis Phillips (so impressed by the few poems he had in this volume I bought his selected works... not so impressed with him now), Charles North, Ted Greenwald, David Bromige (bought his collected works... still am impressed), and Bob Perelman. Also some big names I can't get my head around: Gr Really enjoyed! Open my eyes to poetry after the New York Schools. Those Black mountain poets really left a legacy.

Also some big names I can't get my head around: Grenier, Lyn Hejinian, Clark Coolidge, Antin, Cage, and Mac Low. It was very convenient to have all the big names in this volume. I would recommend people reading this volume then doing additional research because it opens your world to plenty of other poets not mentioned in the volume. Thank you Mr. Messerli. Could have used more of the traditional black poets... If there could have any improvement.

    i think this is sort of my poetry bible. im hoping, soon, someone will edit a poetry anthology of similar weight from the generation that followed these poets. included in the anthology are the gamut of important experimental poets who, in one form or another, contradicted/went against a troubling and ever growing academy. the ceravolo poems in the book are memorable, as are diane ward's work. lorine niedecker, louis zukofsky, jack spicer, and larry eigner are also included in the anthology. i think this is sort of my poetry bible. im hoping, soon, someone will edit a poetry anthology of similar weight from the generation that followed these poets. included in the anthology are the gamut of important experimental poets who, in one form or another, contradicted/went against a troubling and ever growing academy. the ceravolo poems in the book are memorable, as are diane ward's work. lorine niedecker, louis zukofsky, jack spicer, and larry eigner are also included in the anthology.

    Why do we not have the cover of this important anthology? We need it visible please! The cover has a marvelous Guston painting, one of my favorites! But this book is a generous anthology in that it is a FULL THROTLE survey of its included authors, not a mere smear of what they offer.

    I will be reading this until the day I die. Paints American poetry from the 60's to the 90's with a very broad brush. Great for finding new styles to emulate.
