Beat icon Lawrence Ferlinghetti said of him, “Rexroth is the master of us all.”  And the poet Gary Snyder wrote, “His poetics and politics are ever more relevant.  I am grateful that we have his vivid hard-hitting poems brought back to us in this one volume.” 
 
Co-edited by Rexroth’s literary executor, Bradford Morrow, and the poet Sam Hamill, this 700-page-plus volume gathers all of Kenneth Rexroth’s poetry, from short lyrics to long discursive poems, and includes a number of his earliest and previously unpublished works.
