About the Author

GEORGE OPPEN (1908-1984) was born in New Rochelle, New York. Often associated with the Objectivists, Oppen abandoned poetry in the 1930s for political activism, and later moved to Mexico to avoid the House Un-American Activities Committee. He returned to poetry--and to the United States--in 1958 and received a Pulitzer Prize for his work in 1969.

Reviews

"In 1934, (Oppen) published a book of stunning, elliptical lyrics about "big-Business" and American capita ism.... His Pulitzer Prize-winning collection Of Being Numerous, published in 1968 (is) to a degree unmatched by any book of American poetry since."
