"An unusual, exciting volume which serves ideally to lead readers into the extraordinary creative world of three Minnesota poets who are familiar with the contemporary poetry of several nations and who together are bringing to American poetry a powerful new direction away from academicism. Poetry which experiments with content rather than with form and whose life does not depend upon the metrics but upon the life of the poet himself. "—John Logan

This is a facsimile edition of the original Sixties Press book issued in 1962 and contains some of Robert Bly's and James Wright's iconic poems.
