The collected poems of Philip Whalen by Philip Whalen( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most path-breaking and creatively radical poets of the San Francisco Renaissance, Philip Whalen (1923-2002) was part of the 1955 Six Gallery reading where the West Coast Beat movement famously began. Working alongside Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, and Jack Kerouac, Whalen developed a conversational and visually unorthodox style that is unique in contemporary poetry His lifelong engagement with the impermanent and sensuous, concerns deepened by his commitment to Zen Buddhism, are on rich display here, along with his warm humor and original illustrations. This Collected Poems rightfully places Whalen among the foremost poets of his time, offering readers a truly major body of American poetic work."--Jacket
