about this item

For too long the essential basis of George Oppen's poetry—the words on the page and their acoustics—has been ignored in critical discussions of his work. Challenging this neglect, Richard Swigg offers the reader a direct route into the visual / auditory dimension of the poems as they develop from the 1930s to the 1970s, while also tracing his important literary relations with contemporaries such as Charles Reznikoff, Denise Levertov and Charles Tomlinson.
