Events[edit | edit source]

  • Charles Olson publishes his seminal essay, Projective Verse. In this, he called for a poetry of "open field" composition to replace traditional closed poetic forms with an improvised form that should reflect exactly the content of the poem. This form was to be based on the line, and each line was to be a unit of breath and of utterance. The content was to consist of "one perception immediately and directly (leading) to a further perception". This essay was to become a kind of de facto manifesto for the Black Mountain poets.
  • George Oppen and his wife, Mary, move from the United States to Mexico, where their links to Communism are less problematic.
  • In the fall, the Beloit Poetry Journal is founded.
  • Pioneer Press founded in Jamaica[1]
  • St. Lucia Arts Guild founded by Derek Walcott and Roderick Walcott[1]
