    New York poet Bernadette Mayer once advised other prospective writers, "don't ever get famous." Kane (American literature, U. of East Anglia, UK) finds this advice a bit ironic given the unfair critical neglect of Mayer and other New York poets of the 1960s and 1970s. In order to correct this imbalance, he has invited a group of scholars and poets to recognize and appraise some of the significant poetic texts produced in this era, as well as to place them in cultural, sociological, and historical context. Poets examined by the 15 essays include Frank O'Hara, Charles North, Ron Padgett, Lewis Warsh, Joseph Ceravolo, Lee Harwood, Ann Waldman, Clark Coolidge, Alice Notley, Hannah Weiner, Amiri Baraka, and the aforementioned Mayer. A few of the contributions focus on individual publications, including Umbra, C: A Journal of Poetry, and Angel Hair magazine. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
