Poetry Flash No. 137. Kevin Killian, George Oppen Dennis Cooper.

Poetry Flash No. 137

San Francisco: Poetry Flash, 1984. Tabloid format, 8 pp. incl. covers, offset printed on newsprint.

Single issue of the longrunning periodical devoted not only to information about the west coast poetry scenes, but also lots of opiniated coverage of readings, critical articles, photographs and even poems- a whole strata of information that is not published elsewhere. Worth the price of admission for the pithy reviews alone, and for the remarkably indepth criticism of readings - a rare feature for a poetry magazine of the time, and a rich resource of anecdote and histories of the smaller moments of the west coast poetry scene.

this issue features a great long review of Dennis Cooper by the late Kevin Killian, an obituary of George Oppen by Steve Abbott, also printing Oppen's poem Psalm, and Adele Langendorf reviewing Frances Mayes.

Near fine with some light toning to extremities. Item #29670

Price: $25.00
