Description

The vibrant nexus of second-generation New York School poetry is celebrated for its intellectual rigor, wit, startling imagery and lyrical beauty. At the center of that generation of influential New York poets is the work of Tony Towle, Charles North and Paul Violi. Here they are recognized for the poetic power of that work and their personal long commitment to the demanding life-in-poetry. In these critical portraits we meet them as young men finding their way, emotionally, philosophically and psychologically “hooked” on poetry, indeed radically changed by the work that may have literally saved their lives.
