Regard for George Oppen's poetry has been growing steadily over the last decade. This study engages with a body of work which can be luminously simple and intriguingly opaque. It charts Oppen's commitment to Marxism and his later explorations of a 'poetics of being' inspired by Heidegger and Existentialism, providing detailed accounts of each of the poet's books. The book draws on the Oppen archive, with its thousands of pages of largely unpublished notes and drafts; in doing so, it maps the distinctive contours of Oppen's poetic thinking to investigate the complex origins of many of his poems
