Review:

Katz's book is thorough, thoughtful and brilliantly argued ... will help to assure Spicer the place he deserves alongside other major American poets born into the 1920s such as Frank O Hara, Paul Blackburn, Robert Creeley and John Ashbery. --Simon Smith, The New Statesman

This is a focused study that elucidates some of the most important concepts and practices of Spicer's poetry in five interconnected essays that deal with Spicer s life and work in distinct, chronological periods. --Body

Daniel Katz's superb new study of Jack Spicer's poetry surveys and synthesizes pioneering work of earlier critics, even as it advances his own distinctive views about, for example, Spicer's development of epistolary and serial forms. Katz avoids the temptation to mask or resolve the contradictory nature of Spicer's poetics, thereby yielding a poet of greater scope and complexity. Acutely intelligent and elegantly written, Katz's book will be essential reading for the many readers discovering Spicer's poetry for the first time and for those aiming to advance the leading edge of Spicer studies. --Professor Daniel Tiffany

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is the first full-length critical monograph on Jack Spicer's work. In the years since his death from alcohol poisoning, San Francisco Renaissance poet Jack Spicer (1925-1965) has gradually come to be recognized as one of most intriguing, demanding, and rewarding of the so-called 'New American Poetry' poets who were first published in Donald Allen's historic anthology of that name. Informed by much archival material only recently made available, The Poetry of Jack Spicer, examines Spicer's post-Poundian translation projects; his crucial theories of the 'serial poem' and inspiration as 'dictation'; his contrarian take on queer poetics; his insistently uncanny regionalism; and his elaboration of an epistolary poetics of interpellation and address.
