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

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 389 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

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Monterey, on the California coast, Sweet Thursday is what they call the day after Lousy Wednesday, which is one of those days that are just naturally bad. Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, the weedy lots and junk heaps and flophouses of Monterey, John Steinbeck once more brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears, from Fauna, new headmistress of the local brothel, to Hazel, a bum whose mother must have wanted a daughter

"Here is science fiction of the highest literary excellence and thematic intelligence. A monastery founded by the scientist Liebowitz is discovered decades after an atomic war. In the first part of the book a young novice in the monastery is the protagonist; in the second part we see scholars in a new period of enlightment; and in the final section we observe man's proclivity for repeating mistakes and the apparent inevitability of history's repeating itself."
