In the years since his death, San Francisco Renaissance poet Jack Spicer (1925--1965) has been hailed as one of most intriguing, demanding, and rewarding of the so-called "New American Poetry" poets first published in Donald Allen's anthology by the same name. Informed by archival sources only recently made available, The Poetry of Jack Spicer examines the artist's post-Poundian translation projects, as well as his crucial theories of the "serial poem;" notion of inspiration as "dictation;" contrarian take on queer poetics; insistently uncanny regionalism; and elaboration of an epistolary poetics of interpellation and address.
