Roots And Branches

Poetry by Robert Duncan

Roots and Branches, Robert Duncan’s second major book of poetry (first published in 1964) is now reissued. The poet has said of himself and his work: “I am not an experimentalist or an inventor, but a derivative poet, drawing my art from the resources given by a generation of masters––Stein, Williams, Pound; back of that by the generations of poets that have likewise been dreamers of the Cosmos as Creation and Man as Creative Spirit; and by the work of contemporaries: Zukofsky, Olson, Creeley and Denise Levertov.”
