The Oppens remembered : poetry, politics, and friendship( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poet George Oppen (1908-1984) and artist and writer Mary Oppen (1908-1990) were striking, exemplary, and somewhat mysterious cultural figures of the last decades of the twentieth century. To a younger group of artists, George Oppen functioned as a mentor, an irritant, and a supporter. Together, because of their intense and unique union, the Oppens provided a model of the companionate artistic life. In this book the poets, editors, writers, composers, and teachers who knew the couple consider their encounters and relationships with George and Mary Oppen. Set at a politically crucial time in US history, from the Cold War through the Vietnam War and the women's movement, the essays show how people tried to integrate art and politics in the spirit of the Oppens' own debates and choices"--

A polyphonic work, both monumental and provisional, Drafts asks how to represent our sense of direness and ethical crises, the awe, asonishment, skepticism and pleasure: that all this is. This installment of nineteen "Drafts" is dedicated to its own poetic and political communities, offering these dedications as pledges to transformation out of social rage and out of grief-inflected hope. The book also contains a witty "summary" of all fifty-seven "Drafts" to date. This book makes clear the ways DuPlessis' long poem is a midrashic response to the long poems of modernism and the tolls of modernity. She is a poet of polysemy, of negativity, of critique. Of "Drafts", Walter Kaladjian remarked, "DuPlessis' avant-garde procedures are imbricated in an ethicopolitical mode of poetic testimony." Nathaniel Mackey said that "Drafts" "affirm and negate the toll history takes on letter and spirit, affirming and negating and navigating a way between
