Previously unpublished writings of Pulitzer Prize-winning objectivist poet George Oppen who abandoned poetry in the 1930s for political activism, later moved to Mexico to avoid the House Un-American Activities Committee activities, and returned to poetry and to the United States in 1958. Editor Cope selected from Oppen's extant writings outside of poetry, including the essay "The Mind's Own Place" as well as "Twenty-Six Fragments," which were found on the wall of Oppen's study after his death. Most notable are Oppen's "Daybooks," composed in the decade following his return to poetry in 1958. [partially from publisher description]
