I hope that The Stamp of Class will contribute to the conversation by reading poets who have yet to be examined in this light. I make no broad claims for this book or the poets it considers, many of whom ‹gure marginally in existing histories. I have written about them simply because their poems inspire me, and can easily imagine another book on this topic addressing an entirely different set of poets. Larry McMurtry’s Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen recounts his love affair with books and reading, and how that pursuit led him beyond Archer City, Texas, to the world of liter-ature.

The Stamp of Class book. Author Gary Lenhart considers poetry and class across a wide variety of time periods and poetic trends and reflects on a range of influential poets from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The essays in The Stamp of Class deal with the question of class as reflected in the works of Tracie Morris, Tillie Olsen, Melvin Tolson, William Carlos Williams, Walt Whitman, and others. The work is rooted in the author's own experiences as a working-class poet and teacher and is the result of more than a decade of exploration.

Gary Lenhart teaches at Dartmouth College and is a poet and scholar. His most recent books of poetry are Father and Son Night, Light Heart, and One at a Time. Lenhart, a poet and professor, is observant and respectful. Without being partisan or arch, he reflects on twentieth century American poetry and points to some of the places where art & activism intersect. In one essay he features the competition of the Donald Allen and Donald Hall anthologies of American poetry. Without delving, mention is made of the black art movement, feminism, and burgeoning post-stonewall gay and lesbian movement.

The Stamp of Class addresses an important area that has not received sufficient attention.

Contemporary poetry remains my primary area of interest, though I have taught classes in creative writing, American Poetry since 1950, all first-year composition courses, and the MALS poetry workshop.
