Read Creasy’s piece in The Paris Review

“The power of anthologies lies not only in the individual works themselves but in the relationships between them. To anthologize is to confront, and perhaps even subvert, the myth of the solitary writer. In Black Mountain Poems, editor Jonathan C. Creasy strongly engages in this type of rebellion. He is true to the nature of his subject: Black Mountain College radically pushed against glorified individualism and nourished a notion of art based on community. It is a sense of ‘scriptural communion,’ as Creasy calls it, that anchors this collection of 16 poets.” — Victoria Nebolsin, Hyperallergic
