Whalen is a trickster, and a scholar: his erudition occasionally obscuring his wild sense of humour.
Whalen was a big influence on the Hippie generation and by far the best writer of his own generation, often dubbed the Beats.
Yet Whalen was content to modestly sit in the background and be lumped with Snyder and Welch as part of some phenomenon arising out of Lloyd Reynold's calligraphy class at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

 Sur l'« âme » des sciences humaines. Réponse au Gaston Roupnel de Philip Whalen (via CobWeb/3.1 ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Dès son introduction, l'ouvrage de Philip Whalen (tout comme l'article précité 5) s'inscrit dans une démarche de réévaluation de l'œuvre de Gaston Roupnel, présenté a priori comme l'un des penseurs les plus novateurs de l'entre-deux-guerres, auquel ses contemporains et la postérité auraient réservé un sort particulièrement injuste.
Philip Whalen se sert tantôt de citations de Gaston Roupnel lui-même pour tenter de convaincre de l'antériorité de ses intuitions (sans toujours voir qu'il s'agit justement d'intuitions et non de constructions intellectuelles étayées et soumises à la critique), et tantôt d'écrits des pères fondateurs des Annales pour en relativiser la valeur8.
Philip Whalen dispose de tous les éléments pour construire la trajectoire et la figure véritables de l'écrivain-historien bourguignon et les ajouter à la connaissance acquise sur la genèse des sciences sociales françaises ; mais c'est un travail encore à faire pour l'essentiel.

 Jacket # 11 - Dale Smith - Philip Whalen: An Introduction
Whalen brings his work so close to the surface of life - life as it happens, with all of the annoyances, minor joys and sudden wake-up calls - that it's probably best to leave the poems alone, sparing them the reductive evaluation of the critic's inquiry.
But her own not-so-subtle claims on Whalen narrow his complex literary achievement to a conceptual and non-representational poetics, rather than identifying it as an exact presentation of his imagination in the tradition of William Carlos Williams.
Hopefully this feature will introduce new readers to his poetry, raise new questions, inspire, prod, tease and connect the disparate threads and recurring elements that have been of continued surprise and delight to students of poetry since the 1950s.

Whalen's passing pulled the light out of today, as it did last night when Michael Rothenberg emailed me the news.
