Though a respected name in hardcore literary circles, in general the late Cowley is one of the unsung heroes of 20th-century American literature. Poet, critic, Boswell of the Lost Generation of which he himself was a member, savior of Faulkner's dwindling reputation, editor of Kerouac's On the Road , discoverer of John Cheever, Cowley knew everybody and wrote about them with sharp insight. This portable volume contains a mixture of his many poems, essays, criticisms, letters, and remembrances of things and people past. Cowley's writings on the great books are as important as the books themselves, and this volume offers a fine selection of them. All American literature collections should own this.
