About the Author

Louis Zukofsky spent forty-six years writing his masterwork "A," and died before he could see the completed version published. Poet, translator, fiction writer, essayist, anthologist, critic, teacher, WPA worker, and binding force of the Objectivist poets, Zukofsky was born in New York City and lived in or near the city his whole life.
Barry Ahearn is the Pierce Butler Professor of English at Tulane University. His books include Zukofsky's "A" An Introduction, Pound/Zukofsky: Selected Letters, and The Correspondence of William Carlos Williams and Louis Zukofsky.

Reviews

'A' belongs in the company of the major modernist epics such as Pound's Cantos or Williams' Patterson. It will repay as much attention as it is given.--Bob Perelman
Zukofsky's art, in this work, is without equal. No poet of our time can sound the resources of language, so actuate words to become all that they might be thought otherwise to engender.--Robert Creeley
The poem is "of a life," but the life that it presents is closer to life-as-experienced than life as narrated or told. And that, in the final analysis, is precisely the essence of Zukofsky's genius.--Mary Wilson
Magnificent: a great poem really rolling in all its power and splendor of language.--James Laughlin
