is strange to begin—as indeed we have to begin—in Eric Mottram's absence.
Eric, in other words, had given me an opening & I had let it pass without making it clear (as Eric was perhaps pushing me to do at the beginning) that the book & writing had always been part of my poetics & even my ethnopoetics & was at that moment becoming—if anything—still more overt.
In that sense, as Eric clearly knew, the book (taken as the "scene," the place in which the writing comes together) was the hidden side of my ethnopoetics, as the city was (for me) the scene of the "new wilderness" named as my project of that time.

 Introduction tp Bob Cobbing
I had a letter from Eric in the mid 70s where he responded to a reference I had made to this year, the year 2000, and saying that he will be long gone by then, that is now: far seeing, regrettably, as ever.
As with Eric Mottram, Bob Cobbing, though he distinguishes between his private and his public, does not keep them entirely separate, but allows them to inform each other; and the poetic pervades and to a considerable extent gives shape to both.
Without Eric, I wonder what many of us would be doing now; that generative energy of Mottram's remains in so much that we do; and it remains in what Bob Cobbing is about to present.

He was the first to teach Beat writing in Europe in the 1950s, the first teacher of American Studies at the University of London, and a co-founder of the Institute of United States Studies in the University of London in 1963.
An indefatigable supporter of the most adventurous, inventive, and socially engaged poetry of the UK and USA, Mottram introduced at least two generations of poets to poetry hidden from view by the a literary establishment, on both sides of the Atlantic that, in Mottram's words, promoted a conformist poetry decoration and decorum.
As Pierre Joris wrote of Eric's poetry -- this is work of "gut passion, crystal clarity of intellect." For *Alive in Parts of This Century*, Pierre Joris chose lines (almost all) from Eric Mottram's work for his contribution.

When Mottram writes in "Dionysus in America," for instance, that "A new society, it is assumed, introduces a new morphology of culture.
It's hard to know exactly what Mottram means by the word, except that he seemed fearful that those same anarchic and Dionysian energies he elsewhere admired had, as is well-known, anti-democratic possibilities.
But certainly I hope that it is in the spirit of Mottram and his work to say that, in meeting his associates and engaging the writings one of the most valuable experiences for me has been in finding a range of opinion and interest poised squarely against both insularity and snobbery.

 Michael Davidson on "Mantis"
This disparity has prompted Eric Mottram to speak of "A"-9's canzone structure as a kind of "dandyism" whose "strained versifying operates a trite statement of art taking its place as labour in 1938-40" (98).
Mottram's essay is one the best accounts of the difficulties of forging a materialist poetics, but it fails to historicize the oppositional meaning of Zukofsky's formalism with respect to competing theories of committed art during this period.
It is for "'Mantis,’ an Interpretation" to return to the poem and dismantle the totalizing gesture implied by the form and manifested in its utopian apostrophe.

 The Evolution of the Hard-Boiled Detective Genre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
After The Long Goodbye (1953), some hard-boiled fiction began to shed its toughness and some of the "code." Ross Macdonald came to the fore of this "progressive" edge of the genre in The Galton Case (1959) and took it to fulfillment in The Underground Man (1971).
Scholars such as Eric Mottram believe that this exhausted the "formal" possibilities of the genre, for Lew Archer "finally sees the genre into impossibility, moving into fictions of self-deception and self expenditure."
