Book Review: Snapshot Poetics

snapshot

In a time when American poetry was still constrained by formalist rules, the Beat Generation broke down convention in favor of uninhibited expression. Suddenly, poetry became immediate, unposed, a moment captured on the page. Allen Ginsberg‘s work is emblematic of this style, and, in Snapshot Poetics, his photographs are too.
