Poetry Magazine (properly called just Poetry) was begun by Harriet Monroe in 1912. In the first decade of its existence it published T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” as well as work by H.D., Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Marianne Moore. The magazine discovered such poets as Gwendolyn Brooks, James Merrill, and John Ashbery.
Contributors have included William Butler Yeats, Rabindranath Tagore, William Carlos Williams, Joyce Kilmer, Carl Sandburg, Charlotte Wilder, Robert Creeley, Wallace Stevens, Basil Bunting, Yone Noguchi, Carl Rakosi, Dorothy Richardson, Peter Viereck, Louis Zukofsky, Charles Reznikoff, e. e. cummings, Frank O’Hara, Allen Ginsberg, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, and Tennessee Williams, among others.
I am humbled to be included in the October, 2015 edition, alongside such luminous poets as Franz Wright, Claudia Emerson, Ron Padgett, Susan Elizabeth Howe, Jonathan Galassi, et al.
