American poets, 1880-1945, second series by Peter Quartermain( Book )

82 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on the writers whose works are the story of modern American poetry to World War II - the story of successive generations of writers increasingly gaining familiarity in and security with the American idiom, gaining confidence in being American poets without having to turn to Europe for models or for approval, nor of having to turn away from Europe
Disjunctive poetics : from Gertrude Stein and Louis Zukofsky to Susan Howe by Peter Quartermain( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disjunctive Poetics examines some of the most interesting and experimental contemporary writers whose work forms a counterpoint to the mainstream writing of our time. Peter Quartermain suggests that the explosion of noncanonical modern writing is linked to the severe political, social, and economic dislocation of non-English-speaking immigrants who, bringing alternative culture with them, as they passed through Ellis Island in their hundreds of thousands at the turn of the century, found themselves uprooted from their traditions and dissociated from their cultures. The line of America, poetry that runs from Gertrude Stein through Louis Zukofsky and the Objectivists to the Language Writers, Quartermain contends, is not the constructive but the deconstructive aspect, which emphasizes the materiality and ambiguity of the linguistic medium and the arbitrariness and openness of the creative process. Providing close reading of Gertrude Stein, Louis Zukofsky, Robert Creeley, Basil Bunting, Guy Davenport, Robert Duncan, and Susan Howe, the book explains how these writers describe the modern experience in a multi-cultural world by displacing commonly accepted cultural icons and by loading their language with multiple potential meanings

The collected early poems and plays by Robert Duncan( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark in the publication of twentieth-century American poetry, this first volume of the long-awaited collected poetry, non-critical prose, and plays of Robert Duncan gathers all of Duncan's books and magazine publications up to and including Letters: Poems 1953-1956. Deftly edited, it thoroughly documents the first phase of Duncan's distinguished life in writing, making it possible to trace the poet's development as he approaches the brilliant work of his middle period. This volume includes the celebrated works Medieval Scenes and The Venice Poem, all of Duncan's long unavailable major ventures into drama, his extensive "imitations" of Gertrude Stein, and the remarkable poems written in Majorca as responses to a series of collaged paste-ups by Duncan's life-long partner, the painter Jess. Books appear in chronological order of publication, with uncollected periodical and other publications arranged chronologically, following each book. The introduction includes a biographical commentary on Duncan's early life and works, and clears an initial path through the textual complexities of his early writing. Notes offer brief commentaries on each book and on many of the poems. -- Publisher's website

Stubborn Poetries : Poetic Facticity and the Avant-Garde by Peter Quartermain( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stubborn Poetries is a study of poets whose work, because of its difficulty, apparent obduracy, or simple resistance to conventional explication, remains more-or-less firmly outside the canon. The focus of the essays in Stubborn Poetries by Peter Quartermain is on nonmainstream poets--often unknown, unstudied, and neglected writers whose work bucks preconceived notions of what constitutes the avant-garde. "Canonical Strategies and the Question of Authority: T.S. Eliot and William Carlos Williams" opens the collection and sounds a central theme: Quarterm
