Don Share on "Counter-Revolution of the Word"

Don Share of "Poetry" Magazine

Don Share's blog is "Squandermania and other foibles." Last month he wrote an entry about my book. He begins: "Like a number of folks I've been in touch with lately, I've been reading Al Filreis's fascinating new book, Counter-Revolution of the Word: the Conservative Attack on Modern Poetry, 1945-1960, which shows that there was what we now call a right wing conspiracy against modernist poetry." And ends: 'Filreis's forte is what he calls 'detailed exploration of ideological antimodernism," and he's done his homework, as you can see.... And do not fail to check out his greatly entertaining and useful blog on the year 1960, called "1960."'
