Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anne Waldman (born April 2, 1945) is an American poet. Since the 1960s, Waldman has been an active member of the "Outrider" experimental poetry community as a writer, performer, collaborator, professor, editor, scholar, and cultural/political activist. Born in Millville, New Jersey, Waldman only lived in New Jersey very briefly. She was raised on MacDougal Street in New York City's Greenwich Village, and received her B.A. from Bennington College in 1966. During the 1960s, Waldman became part of the East Coast poetry scene, in part through her engagement with the poets and artists loosely termed the Second Generation of the New York School. During this time, Waldman also made many connections with earlier generations of poets, including figures such as Allen Ginsberg, who once called Waldman his "spiritual wife." From 1966-1968, she served as Assistant Director of the Poetry Project at St. Mark's; and, from 1968-1978, she served as the Project's Director.show more
