  Louis Zukofsky   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Zukofsky considered Ezra Pound to be the most important living poet, and in 1927 he sent his poem Poem beginning "The" to the older man. The poem, most of which figure of is addressed to the poet's mother, was a kind of parody of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land.
In his early years, Zukofsky was a committed Marxist, but his sense that experimental work such as his own would never find favour in Marxist circles, added to his own sense of the importance of his private, domestic life, caused him to move away from the Communist Party from the early 1930s.
Zukofsky also wrote critical essays, many of which were collected in Prepositions: The Collected Critical Essays of Louis Zukofsky (1968) and the book-length study Bottom: On Shakespeare (1963) which was accompanied by a second volume containing a setting by Celia of Pericles.

 A Biographical Essay on Zukofsky by Mark Scroggins
Zukofsky, the only one of his parent's children to be born in the New World, grew up in a Yiddish-speaking household, in the midst of a Yiddish-speaking community.
Zukofsky began the Thirties by publishing the first installments of his long poem "A"; much of "A"-1 through "A"-7, written between 1927 and 1930, had appeared in various small magazines, but the collective publication of these "movements" (as Zukofsky would call them) in An "Objectivists" Anthology signalled that a major project was clearly underway.
Zukofsky had been fascinated with the ideas of this Jewish philosopher since "Poem beginning 'The,'" and Spinoza's categories of natura naturans and natura naturata ("nature naturing" and "nature natured"--creator and created, roughly, considered as moments of a single entity) are fundamental to his conception of poetics, and recur throughout the early sections of "A".

 On "Mantis"
Zukofsky's renovation of the sestina form is intended as a refutation of the modernist rejection of predetermined forms, but his assertion of two corollary characteristics of procedural form also identifies his efforts as distinctly postmodern.
Zukofsky's point throughout his "Interpretation" has been that there is a correlation of the "fact" of the sestina's twisting structure and the "thoughts' torsion" that comprises the poem's content.
We know that Zukofsky was deeply influenced by Marx at the time of writing "Mantis." His relationship to Marx's thought, however, was marked by a dialectical dilemma of the very sort that Marx himself invokes in his famous aphorism concerning the philosopher whose job is no longer to describe the world but to change it.

 EPC | Lorine Niedecker | The Poetry of Louis Zukofsky
Zukofsky's hell is today's and the good he finds is today's.
Zukofsky, in presenting economics and politics, is, for all that, interested in recording a poem, in holding together the parts: "And of labor:/ Light lights in air,/ on streets, on earth, in earth --/ Obvious as that horses eat oats --/ Labor as creator,/ Labor as creature,/ To right praise." And without predatory intent:
The second half of "A"-9 is another canzone, the rhyme almost identical with that of the first -- the 13th century prosody and love -- recapitulated in its 20th century definition as calculus of thought, but thought that still has a shape: and so it balances the economics and physics of the first half.

 Bradford Haas - Louis Zukofsky: Appollinaire
Zukofsky, with his careful attention to detail, was perfect for such a job, and no doubt the experience honed and expanded his knowledge of the American people and the objects they produced.
Zukofsky disliked the job and the book, and asked that he not be given credit for the translation.
Zukofsky’s brilliance and attention to detail could not be called into question, and Williams took full advantage of this facet of his friendship with LZ, often sending him drafts of his work for correction, emendation, and comment - and all this despite the fact LZ was the younger poet.

 Louis Zukofsky and the Transformation of a Modern American Poeti
Viewing Louis Zukofsky as a reader, writer, and innovator of twentieth-century poetry, Sandra Stanley argues that his works serve as a crucial link between American modernism and post- modernism.
Like Ezra Pound, Zukofsky saw himself as a participant in the transformation of a modern American poetics; but unlike Pound, Zukofsky, the ghetto-born son of an immigrant Russian Jew, was keenly aware of his marginal position in society.
Stanley explains how Zukofsky emphasized the materiality of language, refusing to reduce it to a commodity controlled by an "authorial/authoritarian" self.

Moving past cinematic rumors to literary documentation, "difficult" poet Louis Zukofsky has gotten still more difficult as incarnated in his son, Paul.
Louis Zukofsky was a man, and a big man. Killed him a bar when he was only three, climbed up a mountain without skinning his knee, wrote naw-thing lak po-ee try, and brought home a baby bumblebee.
I appreciated your entry on dissertation advisors, and I'd add that since those relationships aren't based on need or symbiosis but on pure charity towards the grad student, there exists a fundamental neurosis that can only be alleviated insofar as the relationship can be recast as collegial friendship.

Louis Zukofsky's most important poetic work now returns to print in a new softcover edition.
People say Zukofsky is difficult, but he's not so difficult if one listens: "The ears have it." Zukofsky says a poem offers pleasure by means of "sight, sound, and intellection." That's one key in to this work.
Zukofsky's "A" isn't for the timid--it's long, after all--and it's not for those who don't want to give their minds and ears a workout--in other words, it's difficult, and doesn't sound like...well, like Robert Pinsky, or Robert Frost.
