A COLLECTED POEMS of Edward Dorn...


A COLLECTED POEMS of Edward Dorn, the American poet who died in 1999, is a necessary and overdue publication, and, whatever the circumstances, the fact that it was not published in U.S.A. suggests that there is something very wrong with the local culture over there, a fact of which Ed Dorn was very much aware. In fact most of the time it dominated his writing.

Not Enough

Lawrence Ferlinghetti on his new book, the old days, and why poetry needs to be beat up. 



Don Draper reads Frank O’Hara in Mad Men
“Now I am quietly waiting for
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.”

Dorn was such a huge influence on American poetry, it figures he would be marginalized by the MFA dominants. Not enough stuff about his feelings I guess. Anybody study with him at Kent State?

I studied with Ed in Boulder. He was my

master's thesis advisor and teacher. I was lucky. I am very lucky.
