Ammiel Alcalay's essay “Out of the Schools and Into the Archives,” published in the 2015 spring-summer issue of American Poets, examines why poets such as John Ashbery, Diane di Prima, and Charles Olson are connected with specific movements, and how such schools and movements can hide more than they reveal. Alcalay takes a close look at the small literary journals publishing poetry in the 50s and 60s, as well as the literary correspondence between poets writing at the time. Also, watch Alcalay in conversation with Bob Holman at the 2014 Poets Forum, where they discussed endangered languages and texts.
