Item description for The New York Quarterly, Number 2 by William Packard...
Since its founding in 1969 by William Packard, The New York Quarterly has been devoted to excellence in the publication of a unique and fervent cross-section of contemporary American poetry regardless of school of thought, style, or genre. Our only concern is to focus on the craft that underlies effective poetry writing. The New York Quarterly features works by both known and emerging poets. The NYQ Craft Interviews present the views of some of our most outstanding poets on the general subjects of style, prosody and technique. The issues are rounded out with an essay or two on the subject of contemporary American poetry that is both accessible and meaningful to readers, poets, students, and teachers of poetry alike. NYQ 2 features a craft interview with Paul Blackburn; an editorial on the history of New York poets; handwritten worksheets and poems of May Swenson, Andrew Glaze, William S. Merwin, and Maxine Kumin; "Assonance is Like This," an article by Eli Siegel; list of films on poetry and poets; photos of Bogan, Kunitz, Field, Merwin, Siegel and Ashbery; and poetry by Allen Ginsberg, Louis Ginsberg, RobertOh Faber, Stephen Dunn, Edmund Pennant, Susan Wecker, Helena Moynihan, Leo Connellan, Robert Lax, Laura Benet, Nikki Giovanni, Virginia Bell, Michael Harlow, William Stafford, Rose Drachler, Jill Hoffman, Brian Swann, Donald Lawder, John Hall Wheelock, Robert Dugan, Ron Padgett, Manu Sassoonian, John Tagliabue, John Hollander, Toby Olson, James Murphy, Elizabeth Yazzetti, and Susan Schell.
