Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Coming After gathers critical pieces by acclaimed poet Alice Notley, author of Mysteries of Small Houses and Disobedience.

Notley explores the work of second-generation New York School poets and their allies: Ted Berrigan, Anne Waldman, Joanne Kyger, Ron Padgett, Lorenzo Thomas, and others. These essays and reviews are among the first to deal with a generation of poets notorious for their refusal to criticize and theorize, assuming the stance that "only the poems matter." The essays are characterized by Notley's strong, compelling voice, which transfixes the reader even in the midst of professional detail. Coming After revives the possibility of the readable book of criticism.

Book News Annotation:

In these essays and reviews, Notley, an award-winning poet and editor of Gare du Nord, explores the work of second-generation New York School poets and their allies, such as Ted Berrigan, Anne Waldman and Ron Padgett. The essays are among the first to consider a generation of poets notorious for their refusal to criticize and theorize and their consequent insistence that "only the poems matter." The volume lacks an index.
