Pac Rim

Pac Rim

Pacific Rim not only designates a geophysical location but a zone of influence as well. As Rexroth so aptly put it, “The Pacific divides as well as unites.” The posts collected under this heading take a look at poets and poetries associated with the West Coast of North America as well as China, Japan, and Australia. The poetic concerns are a cross-section of modernism’s diversity from Language School to New York School to the more laid back but no less vital California School.
Caveat Lector: some of the post below can be found under comparable headings as well.
