Douglas Blazek

One of the instigators of the “Mimeo Revolution“, poet and editor Douglas Blazek is considered a force in the American poetry “underground” of the 1960s. Early in his career, Blazek published hundreds of poems in dozens of books, chapbooks, and little magazines that, in Blazek’s words, “contributed to the ferment of the Sixties.” Blazek also founded and edited the magazine Ole and the small press Open Skull. As an editor, Blazek published work by Charles Bukowski, Robert Crumb, d.a. levy, and other non-establishment writers.

As described in the introduction to James DenBoer’s A Bibliography of the Published Works of Douglas Blazek: 1961-2001 (Glass Eye Books, 2003), Blazek is noteworthy for his prolific early period (1964-1978), followed by an extended hiatus. Between 1978 and 2009, Blazek published only one book, but this was also a time of intense creativity, as the poet focused on rewriting all his previously published work. The first book-length results of this labor, Aperture Mirror and Gutting Cats in Search of Fiddles, were published in 2012 by Edition Muta with more titles forthcoming.

The following indexes examine work during Blazek’s “prolific early period”.

Jim Lowell’s levy checklist

JAMES R. LOWELL

A Preliminary Checklist of the Writings of d.a. levy (1942-1968)

DEAR D.A.,
Well, old friend, the sackcloth of respectability has been laid upon you. A scholarly and respected library journal is devoting an issue to you and your writings. Imagine your ashes will ignite the Cuyahoga over it, but at least it will be a pure flame. It certainly isn’t a complete checklist but it is a start. Your good friends, Douglas Blazek and Kent Taylor have been most helpful in preparing it.  With a couple exceptions I’ve limited the list to those publications entirely by you, and those edited by you. As your old gadfly, Colonel  J. Williams, would exclaim, ONWARD!
