Joshua Beckman    


 

Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes on Beckman: "Beckman's poems flow out from a long American tradition beginning with Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass through Carl Sandburg's Chicago Poems to Charles Olson's Maximus poems and Allen Ginsberg's Fall of America, even, perhaps strangely, the columnar iconographic gestures of Concrete poets like Ian Hamilton Finlay, overlaid onto otherwise buoyant lines."

Read three selections from Something I Thought Would Be Different and an essay on Joshua Beckman.
