Scope and Contents

Timothy Longville signature, dated July 31 1963 appears on a blank page near the title page. He edited Grosseteste Review (1967--84) along with John Riley. This began essentially as an English Objectivist magazine, gazing at the USA, and gradually became devoted to something much more local, unidentifiable, and unexpected, something which hadn't really existed in 1967; and sometimes called the Cambridge Leisure Centre, although that isn't very appropriate, and "English Objectivism' isn't wholly descriptive either. Most readers will know this group through A Various Art (1987), edited by Longville and by Andrew Crozier, the publisher of Ferry Press books, who had co-edited The English Intelligencer with Peter Riley), which is useful and widely available. It includes poems by Longville, Crozier, JH Prynne, Roy Fisher, John Seed, John Hall, Anthony Barnett, John James, Douglas Oliver, Peter Philpott, John Riley, David Chaloner, Veronica Forrest-Thomson, Nick Totton, Ralph Hawkins, Iain Sinclair, and Peter Riley. The anthology represents a Time now of about 1975. This is the British response to the generation of American poets who included Olson, O'Hara, Ashbery, John Wieners and Dorn, as well as to Carl Rakosi and George Oppen, the generation of 1931. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
